Journalists. Intrepid crusaders for truth and justice, or cynical slingers of sensationalism and the now-dreaded ‘fake news’? It might be some combination of the two (except of course for self-appointed film critics, whose dedication and value are without question), but the world of journalism has always been of interest to filmmakers, with its capacity for high stakes, morality plays and occasionally, a quickly-escalating news team brawl. All through September into early October, the Light House Cinema will be screening an extensive selection of great films about journalists, news anchors, newspaper men and more in the media, with classics both cult and canonised from some of the biggest names in Western filmmaking. Exploring journalism in all its forms, ‘Hacks’ season is here and we have the full schedule for you to peruse.Read more…
access>CINEMA and the Embassy of Ireland have long been committed to bringing the best of Japanese cinema to Ireland. That includes April of this year when they hosted another successful edition of the Japanese Film Festival and last night, when the excellent Shin Godzilla was finally shown in Ireland. Preceding that screening at the Light House Cinema was an announcement that the Japanese Film Festival and the Light House will be showing an impressive line-up of anime films throughout the rest of the year. Mixing eagerly anticipated upcoming releases with an anime classic, ‘Anime House’ ensures there’s a lot to look forward to for fans of Japanese animation in Dublin for the rest of 2017.
It may be hard to believe now, but there was once a time when America was under the thumb of a brash lout with delusions of class, a man who rose to power and prominence despite his blatant criminality. Though there are certainly no modern day comparisons to Al Capone that spring immediately to mind, he remains a fascinating historical figure. As it happens, this summer marks the 30th anniversary of the classic film The Untouchables, Brian De Palma’s strongly-casted story about Eliot Ness and his team of Untouchables’ efforts to bring Capone down during Prohibition. Grindhouse Dublin have chosen to celebrate the film’s anniversary for their screening this month, showing it at the Light House Cinema on July 28th.
For monster movie fans on these shores, the anticipation for Shin Godzilla has been building and building for some time.

And now, finally, the film will be showing here, with a select number or screenings taking place in Dublin this August.
