Jameson launched details of a new film concept – The Jameson Cult Film Club which was previewed at this year’s Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.
For this inaugural Irish event, Oscar winner Kevin Spacey attended a screening of The Usual Suspects followed by an on stage Q&A session about the film and his recent work.
Oscar winner Kevin Spacey made his film debut in 1986 with a small part in the film Heatburn. Since then he has gone on to direct, produce and star in an array of award winning movies including American Beauty, Seven, LA Confidential, Recount (HBO) and Superman Returns to name but a few. More recently Kevin was the Executive Producer on The Social Network which picked up a Golden Globe and has the leading role in his latest movie, Casino Jack. In February 2003, Kevin Spacey became the artistic director of the Old Vic, London’s oldest theatre where he will remain in the post for another four and a half years.
The Jameson Cult Film Club event took place on February 22nd in an abandoned warehouse ‘Kujan House’ at the Dublin docklands. The theme for the experiential event will centre around The Usual Suspects. The movie will be brought to life through the chosen venue, live theatre and props transporting the audience into the world of Cult Film. After the screening the night will continue with a party in true Jameson style.
“We are delighted that Kevin Spacey has taken time out of his busy schedule to come to Dublin for the first ever Jameson Cult Film Club screening of The Usual Suspects, commented Catherine O’Grady, Director of PR, Sponsorship & Events at Jameson. “The intention of the Jameson Cult Film Club is to deliver an unforgettable screening experience for all those who attended. We hope to run a series of Jameson Cult Film Clubs in Dublin throughout the year”.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
