It’s a teenage dream this summer at the Light House’s Not Another Teen Season

The Light House have announced their summer season and it’s more packed than a pimple and more exciting than a sweaty first shift at a disco. All the way from July to September at the Smithfield cinema it’s Not Another Teen Season, a celebration of teen movies across genre, across decades and all across the summer.

In a densely programmed season, every avenue of the teen experience on screen is set to be explored over the coming months, from the traditional coming-of-age stories to the equally beloved coming-of-death teen slasher. Indulge your younger self with their Twilight marathon, get scarlet for Emma Stone as you brush up on Easy A for their Cinema Book Club and more. There are over 30 films on offer throughout, everything from romance to horror, satire, dance, action, drama and millions more – who said teens have no attention span?

With hits from Robert Rodriguez, John Waters, George Lucas, Wes Anderson, Céline Sciamma, Wes Craven and of course, John Hughes, it’s a who’s who of teen auteurs. In September, they’ll also be showing Ireland’s own classic-in-waiting Dating Amber, David Freyne’s movie about two school friends who decide to start a pretend straight relationship in an effort to fit into 90s Ireland.

On 6th August, they’ll be following a screening of 10 Things I Hate About You with a 90s party. The celebrations continue in style on 10th September, with the deadly Debs you never had, a Carrie-themed Prom Party after watching the De Palma/King classic.

Check out the full line-up of films showing this summer at the Light House Cinema’s Not Another Teen Season below. Tickets available now.
