Fan of the Coen Brothers?

On Friday, March 4, 2016, to celebrate the launch of Hail Caesar!, the Coen Brothers’ new release, the Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield is delighted to collaborate with Dublin illustrators Blind Elephant for an exhibition of reimagined film posters.
The artists and designers of Blind Elephant Illustration Collective were invited to redesign posters of their favourite Coen Brothers’ films. The exhibition will be on show in the mezzanine area of the Lighthouse Cinema from the opening night of Hail Caesar! on March 4, and will run until March 18.
The party will kick off at 8pm and we’ll be doing late screenings of the film so you’ll have time to enjoy a beverage and have a dance before the film kicks off at 10.30pm.
Come along in appropriately weird and wonderful costume inspired by the gobsmackingly gorgeously attired Hollywood sirens and sexpots of the past. We’ll have themed cocktails and era‐specific music on the night but it’s up to you to bring the glamour!

At the Lighthouse Cinema, Smithfield, Dublin.
For the month of June we are screening a season of our favourite of his films. From Stripes to Lost In Translation and including a Ghostbusters double bill, a tribute to Bill and Harold Ramis and our very first big-screen karaoke party.
