I just like the place. The atmosphere is part of the evening's entertainment, including the restaurant, and the movies are often worth attending too!

We went to the IFI to see The Deer Hunter, starring Robert DeNiro and Christopher Walken. The movie was great (and long), but the seats there are comfortable. We also enjoyed a snack before the show at the cafe. A fun way to spend our Saturday.

We ddin't fancy going out drinking so this was the perfect low key evening for us. The IFI is based around a courtyard and looks fabulous. We had coffe and cake in the cafe and followed it with two movies. We were in screens 1 and 3 and both were super comfortable, stylish and clean. The institute has a fantastic programme and the location in the heart of temple bar is easily accessible. It was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommended-we will make it a tradition for further Dublin Visits.

Love the IFI Unless you know it's there it is easy to walk past - don't! Even if you don't want to see a great range of European/Indie films there is a great bar and restaurant and shop selling film books and DVDs

This (and the lighthouse cinema) is my favourite place in town to see a film as it has all the ingredients for a nite out in addition.A discerning audience, enjoying great film choices in comfortable seats minus the chewing and rustling of popcorn, sweet papers and general noise melee in almost all other cinema's .
