Jameson Cult Film Club 1(1)

Nick Moran attended an exclusive Jameson Cult Film Club screening of Guy Richie’s iconic crime comedy, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels at Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre on Monday 23rd March, as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. The actor participated in an in-depth Q&A about the movie with presenter Dave Fanning along with recreating the infamous poker game scene with look-alike actors, much to the delight of guests.

 

The interactive Jameson Cult Film Club screening is widely regarded as one of the most hotly anticipated events in the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival programme, and organisers did not disappoint. Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre was completely transformed into a series of sets from the movie including Timothy’s Boxing Gym and Eddy’s Apartment next to the gang hideout.

 

Iconic scenes such as Plank’s head going through the wall, Eddy leaving the boxing club after losing the card game and the end scene with Tom hanging over the bridge reaching for the antique guns were acted out by lookalike actors throughout the screening. During another live scene when Gloria opens fire with machine gun, the audience were treated to spectacular pyrotechnics display as ‘debris’ landed on their laps.

 

Commenting on the film’s cult status, Nick Moran said “I’m looking forward to my time at this year’s Jameson’s Dublin International Film Festival; it is an honour to represent this classic film.”

 

Following the screening, the party continued in true Jameson style with DJ Aidan Kelly on decks. Guests enjoying the Jameson Ginger and Limes at the venue included rugby player Mike McCarthy, international model Sam Homan, actors Adam Weafer, Carl Shaaban and Leigh Arnold along with presenters Dave Fanning and Lottie Ryan.
