Ireland's Oscar-Nominated film, The Secret of Kells, Opens in Cambridge on Friday, March 19

Ireland's hit animation film, The Secret of Kells, opens in the Boston area this Friday, March 19, at the Landmark Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge.

The Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA) is raffling off a free pair of tickets to attend the show on Friday night, and a special after-the-show discussion with the film's director Tomm Moore.

Winners are also invited to attend the special reception after the screening on the 19th, hosted by the Boston Irish Film Festival.

Nominated in the animated film category at this year's Academy Awards ceremonies in Los Angeles, The Secret of Kells includes voices of film stars Brendan Gleeson, Evan McGuire, Mick Lally and others. Screen Daily calls the film, "visually ravishing, and doused in Celtic magic!" The film plays at the Landmark Kendall Square through March 25, and director Tomm Moore will also be making a special appearance at the 1pm show Saturday.
