This arthouse film institute is a hip Temple Bar hangout for Dublin cinephiles. It houses three cinemas, the Irish Film Archive, a library, a small but comprehensive bookshop, a busy bar, and a cafe that’s a good place for a cup of coffee on a cold afternoon. Although the emphasis is on Irish cinema, groundbreaking films from all over the world get shown here, with a good mixture of new and older titles. Wild Strawberries is a bimonthly film club for the over 55s; see a classic movie with free tea or coffee. There are also special film-related events, many of which are free.
