I’ve just seen a great deal being advertised on the IFI’s facebook page.
The IFI is showing Jacques Audiard’s ‘A Prophet’ on Monday 8th Feb at 8.10pm with a special Student Night ticket price of only €5!
But wait, there’s more.
Also on this night you can buy discounted annual membership for €10 and €3 bottles of Paulaner after the show.
Buy your discount tickets at the Box Office on the night. If I wasn’t working or had already seen A Prophet, I would be there.

Moore Street Masala, David O'Sullivan
Sorry for being off the radar for the last week or so, circumstances dictated and I barely had time to wipe my nose, never mind write an article! Anyways- Just a quick check in to remind people that the seventh annual Jameson Dublin International Film Festival takes place this month, running from the 18th to the 28th in cinemas across the city; Cineworld, The Savoy, Screen and the Irish Film Institute as well as The Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield and Movies@Dundrum.
Amidst the 120 or so film debuting at the Festival are a few Irish productions that look well worth seeing; Below are two I’ll certainly be heading along to!
Between The Canals, Mark O'Connor
Between the Canals follows the lives of three small- time inner city criminals, each with a different ambitions and aspirations; The JDIFF site describes it as “A heartbreaking and occasionally hilarious story of loyalty, duty and masculinity.” It’s certainly one I’ll be checking out, if only to see our man Damien Dempsey on the big screen.

Meeting Room, James Davis
Meeting Room takes on one of the most controversial eras in modern Dublin history; In early 1982, residents of Hardwicke Street called a meeting to address the epidemic of heroin use in the flats and the lack of action from the authorities to address the impending catastrophe. The concerned parents of the area decided to take matters into their own hands and soon had formed a group known as Concerned Parents against Drugs (CPAD) to confront the dealers and drive them out of the neighbourhoods.
