We at Film In Dublin love movie experiences of all kinds whether it’s heading along to the cinema for some classic programming, attending a film festival at the local library, chilling at home with the latest Netflix release or enjoying an open air cinema in one of Dublin’e beautiful parks. One of the more unique film-going experiences in Ireland, the Retro Drive-in has several classic film screenings for Halloween and Christmas announced as 2017 moves into its final stages. Usually aking place in Bray, technically the drive-would fall just outside the fair city of film where we like to confine our coverage, but sure look. Your car is in Dublin isn’t it? And this year, the Retro-Drive in has a new venue in Dublin for you to drive it on out to. If you want to see some classic films in an old-school way, check out the programme of the Retro Drive-in for the holidays ahead.

The second Dublin Bowie Festival will take place citywide this January, beginning on Thursday 5th of January and continuing until Tuesday the 10th, the one year anniversary of David Bowie’s death. With last year’s festival happening to coincide with that event, interest was naturally high and the festival is already expanding considerably, with a programme of live music, Q&A panels and more, celebrating the impact that David Bowie had on art and pop culture. Included in that, of course, is a look at the musician’s work in film, with the Light House Cinema set to host a number of screenings of Bowie-related cinema in January 2017.
