The Dictator

Premiere:  1. Robert Sheehan and Rosanna Davison; 2. Anne Gildea, Maria Tecce and Sue Collins aka The Nualas.

The Dictator has arrived and demands you see his movie!  Sasha Baron Cohen’s latest gag fest also starring Anna Faris and John C. Reilly, sees him reunited with Larry Charles.  The Dictator tells the heroic story of a leader who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.

The premiere screening at the Savoy was preceded by a live link satellite transmission from the world premiere at the Royal Festival Hall in London.  Guests at the Savoy Cinema saw General Aladeen arriving on the red carpet while a host of well-known Irish personalities grace the red carpet in Dublin.  They included Rob Sheehan, The Nualas, Keith Barry, Liam Cunningham, Glenda Gilson, Niall O’Farrell and newly married Michael Hayes and wife Ailbhe.
