If you're thinking of catching a movie this week, we've picked out a few screenings and international movies worth checking out across Dublin..

Lost in Translation (35mm) Karaoke Night

Friday 5th June, 8.30pm, Light House Cinema.

Marking the beginning of the eagerly anticipated month-long Bill Murray season at Light House cinema, Friday night sees Sofia Coppolla’s lonely masterpiece screened in glorious 35mm. The screening will be complete with Japanese cocktails and naturally, big-screen karaoke afterwards. If you’ve missed out on tickets, it screens again on Saturday and Wednesday (sadly, sans karaoke).

Gascoigne (with Satellite Q&A)

Monday 8th June, 6:50pm, Omniplex Rathmines/ Light House Cinema.

The tumultuous career of troubled football superstar Paul Gascoigne is the subject of this new documentary. His self destructive behaviour and mental health issues have established him as one of the more tragic sporting heroes in recent memory. Jane Preston’s documentary is followed by what should be an eventful Q&A, with Gazza himself set to make a rare public appearance.

Slow West (Exclusive Preview with John Maclean Q&A)

Thursday 11th June, 8.30pm, IFI.

Winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance, one-time Beta Band member, John Maclean, brings his debut feature to IFI for an exclusive preview screening. A stylish, modern take on the western, it features our boy Mickey Fassbender and the ever-reliable Ben Mendelsohn. In a summer filled with superhero movies, it looks to be a breath of fresh air - see it first next Thursday.
