There was great excitement, glitz and glamour last night at one of Ireland’s first look screenings of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI at Century Cinemas in Letterkenny. Over 200 invited guests were treated to a sparkling reception and canapés before one of Ireland’s first look screenings of the much awaited film just after midnight.
The screening was gifted by LucasFilm and Disney as a thank you to the people of Malin Head and Donegal. Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Gerry McMonagle thanked Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures for supporting this special First Look Screening at Century Cinemas in Letterkenny and he also paid tribute to Mark Doherty and his team at Century Cinemas.
In May 2016, Malin Head became one of a number of locations across the world where scenes from STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI was filmed. Aideen Doherty from the Donegal Film Office explained that last night’s event was very much an appreciation screening and the invited guests included many of the crew who worked on the set of the film at Malin Head as well as local service providers who supported the production company from the word go.
