Jameson Cult Film Club

Last week, Jameson whiskey hosted a quite unique cinematic event at Village Underground, Shoreditch; the first in a series of cult film screenings dubbed the ‘Cult Film Club’. Celebrating classic films in themed locations with amazing atmospheres, the club is open the public (check out their website to register for tickets) and provides a worthwhile night’s entertainment across London.

Village Underground, decked out with benches and cushions, overhead lighting and a liberal dosage of Jameson’s finest, played host to Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting in the first of seven planned events. Patrolled by energetic actors portraying the characters from the film (delivering classic and improvised dialogue) the venue had a pleasant energy running through it and attracted a lot of attention from press and public alike.

The next Jameson Cult Film Club is on 28th October at Union Chapel, Islington, and the film will be An American Werewolf in London. If you’re into film, it’ll surely be worth the trip. Continuing the horror trend in the run up to the creepiest time of the year, Union Chapel goes on to host The Shining, Dracula and, on the 31st, Halloween. See you there!
