David Bowie's 'Labyrinth' Will Be Screened This Weekend To Raise Funds For Cancer Research

Come enjoy one of Bowie's greatest performances as the Goblin King


With the world still trying the process the loss of David Bowie, the Light House Cinema are honouring his memory by screening the classic Labyrinth this weekend, with the proceeds going to the Irish Cancer Society.

The story follows a teenager named Sarah (a young Jennifer Connolly), who's been left to babysit her baby brother Toby. When reading him a bedtime story, Sarah accidentally summons the Goblin King (Bowie), who steals the baby and takes him to his castle, which is in the middle of a labyrinth in a fantasy land. Now Sarah must solve the labyrinth by midnight, or Toby will be turned into a goblin...

The 1986 movie was product of the creative collaboration of Bowie with George Lucas (Star Wars) and Jim Henson (The Muppets), which resulted in a complete (and perhaps under-appreciated) gem. So if you haven't seen it, there's really no better time than this weekend. 

Check out the trailer below.

Labyrinth will be screened at the Light House Cinema in Smithfield this Friday at 11.30pm and Sunday at 12.30pm. Tickets go from €7.50 and you can find them here.
