Cinema Book Club

Like films? Like books? Like talking about films and books?

In association with Chapters Bookstore on Parnell St, Light House Cinema Book Club selects the best (and worst!) book to film adaptations to watch and discuss in our unique monthly book club. Each month we'll pick a different book and film adaptation for discussion. Read the book, then join us for the film and a discussion afterwards in our bar. Great chats, great people and great fun on the last Monday of every month.

Go to Chapters Bookstore on Parnell St. and mention the Light House Cinema Book Club to get 10% off your copy, then join us at Light House Cinema to watch the film and discuss the (de)merits of each in the bar afterwards. If you show your Chapters receipt at the Light House you get 10% off your ticket as well! No membership necessary but please be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for updates.

 

Cinema Book Club: 10 Things I Hate About You

Monday, 26th June, 6.30pm

This month we're reading William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew (our first play, YAY!) and watching the wonderful 90's adaptation 10 Things I Hate About You. 

Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) is a tenth grader who has never gone on a date, as her parents have a little rule where Bianca isn't allowed to go out with boys until her older sister gets a boyfriend. The problem is, while her older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) is attractive and intelligent, she's also a mean-spirited misanthrope who rubs nearly everyone the wrong way — especially boys. But Bianca and the guy she has her eye on, Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan), are eager to get their romance on the road, so Joey fixes Kat up with Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger), a new kid in town who may be just bitter and mysterious enough to suit her.
