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: MARY POPPINS

Monday 27th August, 6.30pm

Long resistant to film adaptations of her Mary Poppins books, P.L. Travers finally succumbed to the entreaties of Walt Disney, and the result is often considered the finest of Disney's personally supervised films. A magical, musical nanny brings a breath of fresh air into the stuffy Banks household in turn-of-the-century England. Overstuffed with gaiety, this children's fantasy is filled to the brim with wonderful dance numbers and outrageous songs (such as the seemingly unpronounceable "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious").

Children of all ages welcome.
