Having been on hiatus since the annual summer outdoor screenings on Greystones’ seafront, the Greystones Film Club are now back indoors, with a new venue, and a newfound drive to celebrate not only the classics of cinema but the very latest offerings too.
Established eight years ago, the Greystones Film Club has been lucky enough to attract filmmakers such as Ken Wardrop (His & Hers) and Alex Fegan (The Irish Pub, Older Than Ireland) whilst celebrating cinema’s rich and varied history.
That celebration will continue in February, with the club’s new VIP Screening Room strands, giving over nights to black & white classics, foreign gems, animation, Irish films, comedy favourites, blockbusters and beyond.
A new strand is highlighting the very latest in independent cinema hits, with Sean Baker’s acclaimed drama The Florida Project – starring Willem Dafoe and Brooklynn Prince – lined up for Thursday, February 22nd.
All screenings will take place at Greystones’ new theatre, The Whale, boasting a state-of-the-art projection and sound system. Seating will be limited to 60 per screening, as these boutique nights will be go beyond the normal cinema experience, with tables and chairs, waiter service and a full bar.
Membership to the Greystones Film Club is free, and you can find out more on greystonesfilmclub.whaletheatre.ie, or you can email [email protected]
