Jameson Cult Film Club Screening of Jaws! With Richard Dreyfuss in Attendance! Tuesday 18th February!

The James Cult Film Club have sent on the following press release about the upcoming screening of Jaws as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival that is kicking off next Thursday, the 13th February. The screening will take place on Tuesday the 18th, and will feature a question-and-answers session with actor Richard Dreyfuss, who collaborated with Spielberg on Jaws, but also on Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

The Jameson Cult Film Club has a special historical attachment to the festival. The first Irish screening was The Usual Suspects with Kevin Spacey in attendance four years ago. The Cult Film Club do screenings all through the year, bringing classic movies to live in a whole new way for audiences. They really are a highlight of the schedule, and tickets are always given away free via their website. You can sign up now, although I’m not sure if the ticket application is open yet.

It’s an experience that I wholeheartedly recommend, as they are always well put together evenings celebrating classic cinema. If you are looking for recommendations for the film festival, check out our own picks of the festival here. Otherwise, I’ve included the press release below.


To celebrate the 12th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Richard Dreyfuss will attend an exclusive Jameson Cult Film Club screening of the 1975 Spielberg classic, JAWS on Tuesday 18th February. Guests will also be treated to a post screening Q&A with the Oscar winning actor which will be hosted by radio personality Rick O’Shea.

Following on from last year’s highly successful screenings of Predator, Die Hard, Intermission and LA Confidential, Jameson are kicking off the 2014 series of Jameson Cult Film Clubs with the iconic shark thriller, JAWS. This interactive screening promises to transport the audience right back to the sleepy holiday town of Amity and into the ‘jaws’ of this legendary killing machine for an unforgettable viewing experience. The venue, which is only revealed to ticket holders, will be completely transformed into a series of sets from the movie, while live theatre and special effects timed perfectly with on-screen action will help to create an electric atmosphere throughout the screening.

Speaking about the Jaws legacy, Richard Dreyfuss said “The fact is, when I first saw the film, it scared the hell out of me. To this day, I won’t walk off the beach into the water. I will however, scuba!”

“We are delighted that Richard Dreyfuss is joining us for the Jameson Cult Film Club screening of JAWS,” commented Fiona Carroll, Brand Manager Jameson Ireland, Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard. “The intention of the Jameson Cult Film Club is to deliver an unforgettable screening experience for all those who attend. Now in its 4th year, the Jameson Cult Film Club is bringing the experience on the road, with exciting plans for screenings in Cork and Galway in 2014.”

Following the Q&A, the party will continue in true Jameson style with DJ Aidan Kelly spinning sounds from John Williams’ spine-tingling score while guests enjoy a Jameson, Ginger and Lime.
