Light House Cinema has announced that Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will be in attendance at the cinema for a live Q&A as part of Edgar Wright House, an exclusive weekend-long event running from 5th – 8th July. The weekend will celebrate Wright’s films in anticipation of the upcoming release of his new film The World’s End on 19th July, a Universal Pictures Ireland release.
By purchasing one of the very limited Edgar Wright House tickets, fans will gain access to a selection of Wright’s films, screening over the course of the weekend at Light House Cinema, with Hot Fuzz showing on Friday, Shaun Of The Dead on Saturday, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on Sunday and finally a live Q&A with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on Monday evening. The live Q&A will be preceded by a screening of two episodes of Spaced, the successful Pegg-penned and Wright-directed British television sitcom.
To mark the occasion, Light House Cinema have teamed up with Damn Fine Print Studio and BLOCK T for an exhibition of limited edition Edgar Wright themed screen-printed posters which will be exhibited in the cinema over the course of the weekend. Artists participating in the project are local illustrators Steve Doogan, Steve McCarthy, Ale Mercado, Fatti Burke and Gavin Beattie. Damn Fine Print Studio BLOCK T is a new community based print studio based in Smithfield.
Edgar Wright’s new film The World’s End, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, follows five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier but unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival. The World’s End opens at Light House Cinema on 19th July.
