Following on from the highly successful screenings of cult classics Reservoir Dogs, Snatch, Alien, Blues Brothers and The Usual Suspects, the Jameson Cult Film Club returned to Dublin for its biggest and most electrifying double screening to date. Dublin’s Mansion House was completely transformed into the Baltimore State Forensic Hospital for an exclusive screening of the 1991 horror thriller The Silence of the Lambs.

Organisers of the Jameson Cult Film Club were once again challenged with transporting the audience straight into the menacing world of Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill and lucky ticket holders were not left disappointed!  Live theatre and special effects timed perfectly with on-screen action helped to create an electric atmosphere throughout the screening.

Jameson and Ginger cocktails along with ‘buffalo bill’ burgers were served  while renowned DJ Aidan Kelly took to the decks after the screening.  Enjoying the night were rugby players Devin Toner, Isaac Boss, Mike Ross and Rhys Ruddock, male models Sam Homan and Carl Shaaban along with actor Fergus Kiely, Shane Lennon and entertainer Shane Gillen, Michelle O’Doherty, model Sinead Noonan ,TV3's Lisa Cannon as well as Audrey Hamilton and Grace Fox.

For the uninitiated, Jameson Cult Film Club is all about watching your favourite cult films at spectacular screenings, staged to transport you into the film’s universe. This is a free event for movie fans, with details at www.jamesoncultfilmclub.ie.
