Jameson Cult Film ClubThe Jameson Cult Film Club is back again for another run of awesome cult movies in great atmospheric locations! If you never been to a Jameson Cult Film Club screening then it’s like secret cinema but without the extortionate price as entry is free and you get some delicious free Jameson cocktails

I went to the Jameson Cult Film Club last year to watch one of my favourite films; This is Spinal Tap. It was held at the Clapham Grand and it did not disappoint. I took a date with me and she was mightily impressed as it was something different from the usual places that one would take someone. Cocktails, popcorn and a mock Spinal Tap performance then the feature film made for an awesome evening. The night was entirely free and the atmosphere was buzzing.

This 2010/11 Jameson Film screenings will not just be taking place in London but all over the country this time round. The first screening will be Taxi Driver on 23 September at the Brewer Street Car Park and ticket applications are now being taken. Subsequent screenings will be:
