Stan & Ollie will be released across Irish cinemas on January 11th and to celebrate we are giving away merchandise packs from the film.

The biographical comedy-drama film is based on the lives of the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, the film stars Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Laurel & Hardy, the world's favorite comedy double act, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future.  As they start crisscrossing the country, attendances are disappointingly low.  But they've always been able to make each other laugh and as the charm and beauty of their performances shines through their audiences laugh too, and they re-connect with legions of adoring fans, old and new.

The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can't quite shake the spectre of Laurel and Hardy’s past; and long buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver's failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership.  A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages begins to unfold as the duo, aware that they may be approaching their swan song, try to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
