From December 14, the Light House – along with its sister picturehouse in Galway, the Palas Cinema – will be the only theatres in Ireland showing Alfonso Cuaron’s Venice Film Festival winner Roma. Set in 70s Mexico City and centring on the relationship between a housekeeper and the family she works for, the Netflix drama will be shown on the big screen due to huge demand.
The Smithfield cinema will also show the controversial new horror The House That Jack Built on December 12 along with a pre-recorded interview with writer-director Lars Von Trier.
