The Jameson Cult Film Club returned to Dublin with an unforgettable screening of Snatch at the Tivoli Theatre, this event follows on from the highly successful screening of The Usual Suspects in February, with special guest Kevin Spacey.

The Tivoli was transformed into a series of sets from the film; including an open trailer park outside and a boxing ring inside as characters from the movie greeted guests and re-enacted famous scenes from the movie live on stage. Throughout the screening, live theatre, props and staging transported the audience into the world of a London Gangster, creating an electric atmosphere in the venue.

DJ Aidan Kelly then took to the decks to entertain guests with an eclectic mix of music while comedian and magician Steve Spade dazzled guests with some amazing stunts. Guests were also treated to ‘Micky O’Neill’ burgers and ‘Turkish’ sausages from the Wright Catering Co. while enjoying the refreshing Jameson Whiskey Sour cocktails.

Enjoying the Jameson Cult Film Club Experience were celebrity ICA Bootcamp participants Eva Orsmond and Emma Jane Quinlan, Mr World Kamal Ibrahim who flew in from London especially for the event, Irish actor Kevin J Ryan, who will shortly be shooting a movie in Galway with Patrick Bergin, rugby stars Tommy Bowe and Thomas O’Leary along with actor/model Shane Lennon, while TV presenters Liam McCormack, Michael Hayes and Lottie Ryan were also seen enjoying the evening.
