The Millennium Theatre, LIT, hosted a very successful screening of the new documentary by director Dave Burns. ‘The Picture House – The Story of Limerick’s Cinemas’ had a near full house in attendance for its launch and first screening.

Some of the documentary’s participants and their families were in attendance as well as a strong contingent of cinema and film enthusiasts, who were treated to a pre-show of a British Pathé News Reel of 1962 as well as a classic Looney Tunes cartoon before the main feature.

Both the Limerick Post and Limerick Leader covered the event in advance and links to their articles are below.

Further press photos were taken on the evening, so keep an eye out in the coming days press.

On a personal note I would like to thank those who helped me setup the screening, LSAD Lecturers, Mark Griffin, Donagh O’Shea and Gerry Meagher as well as Nora Ní Fhlatharta who promoted the event on social media.

Finally, thanks to all who attended the screening. A lot of careful effort and decision making was done in putting this project together and it meant a lot to the producers, director and the participants that such a large crowd showed up. As the editor, I was delighted that so many enjoyed the memories it brought back and hopefully it might encourage a return of a single screen cinema to Limerick City sometime in the near future.

In another article in this weeks Limerick Post, the idea of a city centre cinema is under discussion again. As a member of the steering group for The Royal project, I am still hopeful that funding can be found to get this multi-purpose project realised.

Big thanks to Limerick Post’s Rose Rushe for the article in this weekends edition. With all the press coverage in the past few weeks there is certainly a big build in excitement for film makers in 2015.
