The Jameson Cult Film Club made its debut in Cork with an unforgettable screening of Snatch at the Cork City Hall. This event was brought on the road following the highly successful screenings of cult classics Reservoir Dogs, Alien, The Usual Suspects and The Blues Brothers in Dublin.

Guests were also treated to ‘Micky O’Neill’ burgers and ‘Turkish’ sausages while enjoying the refreshing Jameson and Ginger cocktails.  Enjoying the experience were rugby stars Thomas O’Leary and Doug  Howlett as well as Munster player Billy Holland.

Cork City Hall was completely transformed into a series of sets from the film; including an open trailer park and a boxing ring 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.
