Dublin became Tinseltown last week when a host of well known actors jetted into Ireland Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. Al Pacino was in for his film Wilde Salome, Glenn Close attended the Irish premiere screening of Albert Nobbs, Martin Sheen for Stella Days while Quentin Tarantino’s debut crime classic Reservoir Dogs was brought to life at a special Jameson Cult Film Club screening.

Mr. Blonde himself, actor Michael Madsen was in attendance to participate in an in-depth Q&A with DJ Rick O’Shea following the screening. The movie which changed the way criminals dressed, walked and talked was encapsulated into an exhilarating movie experience which included a complete set build of the hideout from the movie "The Warehouse" at Dublin’s CHQ. Guests included director Jim Sheridan, actor Eoin Macken, presenter Brendan O’Connor, singer Jerry Fish and rugby stars Tommy Bowe, Andrew Trimble, Isaac Boss and Kevin McLaughlin.
