Dublin Castle to host open-air 'Holy Grail' screening

Dublin Castle is to host an outdoor screening of the 1975 cult classic movie 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' against the backdrop of the Castle's Coach House.

The movie is first in a series of outdoor screenings taking place across the city as part of Open Air Cinema, the latest venture by Happenings, an initiative spearheaded by entrepreneur Peter O’Brien.

O’Brien said: "This growing initiative is about people taking responsibility and using their city as their own. With a focus on sustainability, we have a 'leave-no-trace' policy, with the minimum use of power and a belief that communities coming together holds the key to Ireland’s future."

The 'Holy Grail screening will take place this Friday, September 17, at 8pm.
