Hollywood Babylon Dublin’s Midnight Movie Film Club is dedicated to your favourite ‘disreputable’ movies. Roughly speaking - movies best seen late at night, in great company and with beer (or a bespoke, appropriately monikered cocktail). Featuring a pre-show of the weirdest clips and trailers from the depths of your VHS nightmares.
This Summer Hollywood Babylon presents 'Modern Midnights'. From June to October a season of recent films that we felt fit the Hollywood Babylon playbook and deserved another big screen outing. From troglyodyte cannibals to giant three story fog-monsters there is no safe place to hide this summer...
A monster movie that mostly takes place during the day and the film that first put Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer, Okja) on the map THE HOST screens in a rare 35mm print.
There are very few recent films that are as fun to watch with a crowd as this super smart genre deconstruction by Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon
Two of the greatest action movies of the past decade, one you've probably heard the other you might not have, both are excellent and will blow your brain straight out the back of your head.
A truly awesome hybrid of horror movie/western Bone Tomahawk slipped by with little recognition but it was one of the best genre movies in years. With a wonderful central performance by Kurt Russel Bone Tomahawk deserves to be seen on the big screen. An intensely memorable experience for fans of genre cinema.
We close out our current season then with a screening of The Mist as Frank Darabont originally intended it to be seen. In any shape or format The Mist is one of the most surprising horror films of recent times, and definitely among the best Stephen King adaptations, it truly shines however in black and white.
