Things To Do In Dublin (24-11-14 – 30-11-14)

The French Film Festival runs at the IFI until the 30th of November. There’s more than a few gems in the line up, so check it out. The Stanley Kubrick Season is at the Lighthouse has its last event, with daily screenings of 2001 from Nov 28th.

There’s a rush of new events at the Theatres around Dublin, with Defenders of the Faith and Looking for Work at the Project among the most interesting looking. Follow at the Abbey is like an old friend returning, with a reprisal of the Wilfredd show. On the Musical end of things, there’s Robert Plant, Cheatahs, Electric Six, Woman’s Hour and Roisin O and more…
