Light House Cinema

Light House Cinema

Light House Cinema is a specialist independent cinema in Smithfield, Dublin.

Committed to programming the best Irish and International films. Their eclectic schedule includes feature films, shorts, classics, foreign language and animated films, feature length documentaries, Event Cinema, inventive special events, seasons and festivals.

In addition to their core specialist programming, they show films that might be considered more ‘commercial art house’ and films that crossover into mainstream cinema when we believe that the film or its talent (writer, director, cast) are of particular interest to our audience.

The films they select serve to challenge their audience and encourage engagement with current aesthetic, political, social and cultural issues and trends.
