Light House Returns

10th March 2008

RTÉ reports that Dublin’s Light House Cinema will re-open in Smithfield Square on 9 May, and will feature four screens.

The new building has been custom-built with investment from developers and grants from the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism and the Cultural Cinema Consortium – a joint initiative of the Arts Council and the Irish Film Board.

As well as four screens, the Light House will feature a café/bar, as well as a separate space for community and outreach projects.

The total capacity is 614 seats, with 277 of those seats situated in its largest screening room.

The cinema’s founders say the programming choices will be mindful of Dublin’s burgeoning multi-cultural society.
