Radio Appearance

Press Release 

April 12th 2019

New film documentary on the history of Limerick cinemas

A new documentary film, ‘The Picture House, will be screened in the Millennium Theatre in LIT at 7.30pm on Thursday 25th April.

Next to sport, cinema has always been Limerick’s main cultural pursuit.  Even today, without a city centre cinema, almost a million cinema tickets are sold in Limerick every year. 

The Picture House looks back at the glory days of the single screen city centre cinema and features archival footage and photographs of 10 of Limerick City Centre cinemas and the memories of former cinema workers and cinema-goers.  

The hour long film revisits the stories of the different cinemas such as the Savoy, Lyric and Tivoli, the 1953 Cinema workers strike, the censorious attitude of the local authority and the Church, and the slow and inevitable decline of the single screen cinema. 

The film was produced and directed by Dave Burns in association with Paul Lynam, Declan McLoughlin and Joe Coleman, filmed by Paul Lynam, Keith Bogue and Jim Pidgeon, edited by Simon McGuire and presented by Mike Finn.  Dave Burns is active in the planned redevelopment of the Royal Cinema in Cecil Street and in Fresh Film Festival.

Director Bio

Dave Burns, former lecturer in computer science at UL, has made another documentary film on local history.  After completing ‘Kemmy’ – a look at Jim Kemmy’s life and work –  in 2017, Dave wanted to place on record some of the past glories of the city centre cinemas.   He has also driven the projected  redevelopment of the old Royal cinema as a four-screen studio cinema.  Dave also chairs the board of Fresh Film Festival, which showcases the works of under-18 film makers, nationally and internationally.

Creative Broadcast & Film Production students and staff of LIT were delighted to present the LSAD Film & Media Showcase19 at the Millennium Theatre. The daylong showcase was a joyous celebration of the ingenuity, creativity, and often times intriguing work created by the students of Creative Broadcast & Film Production. Nigel Mercier dropped in on the day to offer an overview of the role of a broadcast & Film extra. Nigel’s company, “SetExtras” is the leading extras company in the West of Ireland. Providing extras since 2016 for TV Commercials, Music Videos, and local International Films. This was followed by “Scene and Heard”, directed by Eoghan Neff, Lecturer on the Music Technology and Production programme, whose students from the Interactive Audio module demonstrated live interpretations of audio recorded from a selection of short video scenes. The showcase reception kicked off with great anticipation and was created and run by first year Creative Broadcast students which ran in perfect harmony with music put together by students of Music Technology directed by lecturer Mike Gavin. The Screening itself, proudly opened by Mike Fitzpatrick Dean of the School of Arts LSAD and supported by the head of department of design James Greenslade, was a festive celebration of all things sound and vision. The energy and enthusiasm of the audience and the general camaraderie amongst the students was infectious, a glorious night of visual storytelling and jubilant entertainment was had by all. Special thanks to the film & media companies who came on board to celebrate and support the work of these talented filmmakers. It is brilliant to witness the growing film and media industry here in Limerick and their support of emerging film makers through offering work experience and supporting the showcase is remarkable.
