We have tickets to a preview screening of Lola in the Lighthouse Cinema on Wednesday April 5th at 7pm, followed by a Q&A between director Andrew Legge and our editor Michael McDermott. For a chance to attend, just drop us a mail on with Lola in the subject line before Friday March 31st.

1941, sisters Thom and Mars have built a machine, LOLA, that can intercept radio and TV broadcasts from the future.

This allows them to listen to iconic music before it has been made, place bets knowing what the outcome will be and embrace their inner punk well before the movement came into existence.

But with the Second World War escalating, the sisters decide to use the machine for good to intercept information from the future that could help with military intelligence. The machine initially proves to be a huge success, rapidly twisting the fortunes of the war against the Nazis.

While Thom becomes intoxicated by LOLA, Mars begins to realise the terrible consequences of its power.

Rory Kiberd’s review of Lola with an illustration by Danielle Byrne is in our April edition which is out now. Lola, which features original music by Neil Hannon, goes on general release on Friday April 7.
