feature: Die Hard at the Jameson Cult Film Club

I had the great fortune last night to attend the Jameson Cult Film Club screening of the 1988 action classic Die Hard.

The Jameson Cult Film Club is a fantastic series of events organised by Jameson all around the world which gives audiences the chance to see their favourite films in a truly unique setting. I’ve been to a few now, Silence of the Lambs in August 2012, Jaws (pics here) in November and the JDIFF screening of LA Confidential, and I have to say they really are something special.

Last night, Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre bar was transformed into the Nakatomi Plaza Christmas Party with ‘Yippee-Ki-Yay Burgers’ and, of course, Jameson. DJ Aidan Kelly grew the anticipation with tunes from the film and the opening of the doors to the theatre was heralded by the sound of gunfire. A nice touch.

I’ve made the mistake in the past of getting there late so this time I made to sure to get in early and I managed to get a seat in the second row. Needless to say, when they dropped the body onto the cop car they had on stage, I jumped. A little. Not that much, I’m pretty hard you know. Also, you might be able to see me in one of the photos… that’s all I’m saying. Other highlights where when they dropped “glass” on us and a great looking fight – almost perfectly in sync with the action on screen I might add.

You can’t buy tickets to these events, the only way to get there is to win them… so head on over the Jameson Cult Film Club website and become a member for your chance to go.
