Jameson’s Movies On The Square

Published by at 12:44 pm under Blog,Movies

Back again is the Jameson’s Movies on the Square season. Last years event brought Terminator, Donnie Darko, Shawshank Redemption and Psycho, among others, back to the big screen and this year looks to be just as good.

I’m sadly going to miss The Commitments (with a live band) tonight – it will be showing tomorrow evening too (bandless). But I will really be trying to catch Annie Hall on the 19th July and Some Like it Hot on 2nd August (my birthday, by the way). I’m most looking forward to the closing event though – Monty Python’s Life of Brian – on 22nd August.

(any excuse to play some Monty Python)

Each movie will be screened on Meeting House Square in Templebar and the tickets are…wait for it…FREE!!! They must be pre-booked and are available at the Temple Bar Cultural Information Centre at East Essex Street, Temple Bar.

    Stranger Than Fiction is a wonderful film, despite having Will Ferrell in it.

    Would you believe I’ve never seen all of Annie Hall?

    Austin Powers is a piece of shit by Hollywood’s biggest piece of shit.

    sorry for swearing.
