This is the first weekend I can actually say that it feels autumnal – I even have a sore throat for good measure. This, weekend lovers, is why the majority of this week’s edition is indoors. What’s On for this weekend features plenty of nostalgia, plenty of new stuff and some good clean family fun too. Happy weekend from IMAGE!

Friday: Head to the 30th Anniversary screening of ‘Heathers’ at the Lighthouse

“What’s your damage Heather?” The classic 80s trope that spawned a litany of new slang, Heathers is back at the Lighthouse cinema in Smithfield for its 30th-anniversary screening. For one night only, join 80s queen Winona Ryder as she forges revenge against the original mean girls, with plenty of black humour thrown in. Tickets still available from the Lighthouse.

 

This weekend: Begin the night at We’ve Only Just Begun at Whelan’s

Weekend tickets are available from just €20 from Whelan’s website.

On Sunday: Wind down at the Vinyl & Wine listening session of Revolver at the Liquor Rooms

A Sunday afternoon spent at the Liquor Rooms with a glass of red in hand, listening to one of the Beatle’s greatest ever albums. Sounds like heaven to me. Vinyl & Wine’s intimate listening sesh is followed by an in-depth discussion of the album and its effects on music in general. The best way to wind down Sunday.
