The first screening of Hollywood film 'Dracula - Untold', starring Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon, will be held in Dublin in aid of St Francis' Hospice, Raheny.
Evans and Gadon will be in attendance at the screening on September 30 at the Savoy on Dublin's O'Connell St, as well as Irish director Gary Shore.
Shot on location in Northern Ireland in 2013, the much action adventure film charts the origin story of its title character, Count Dracula.
Evans made his breakthrough in Clash of the Titans (2010) before starring in Immortals, The Raven, and The Three Musketeers. Canadian actress Sarah Gadon is best known for David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method.
Universal Pictures Ireland and Jameson Dublin International Film Festival will present the screening, which is Shore's feature debut, and the film's first screening with an audience.
"Apart from the honor of this being in Dublin, I wanted to use this opportunity to recognize the great work of St. Francis Hospice," says Shore.
"I cannot speak more highly of the people who work there and the service it provides to patients and families. Thank you JDIFF and St. Francis hospice for allowing me to do this.”
Ethel McKenna, Chief Executive Officer of St. Francis Hospice adds, “We are absolutely delighted that Dublin film-maker Gary Shore would dedicate his first screening to St. Francis Hospice.
"We are so deeply grateful to Gary, Universal Pictures Ireland and the Dublin International Film Festival for their support of this occasion.”
The screening takes place at 7.30pm, Tuesday September 30 at the Savoy, Dublin. Tickets €10 from www.jdiff.com
