THE Iveagh Cinema is the ideal location to enjoy an evening of relaxation by taking in a movie while enjoying some drinks and snacks - but the Movie Studios at Downshire Place have hosted theirfair share of celebrities over the years too.
The most recent- and undoubtedley most famous of all - was Lady Gaga when she dropped by for a rehearsal last November ahead of the MTV Music Awards in Belfast. This coup followed years of celeb visits and exciting events at the studio, which regularly hosts concerts and plays.
Television presenter Barry Norman visited the location in 2007, much to the delight of staff pictured with him.
The studio hosted a charity screening of popular ﬁlm Mickybo and Me a few years back when the stars of the show, John Joe O’Neill and Niall Wright, as well as the movie’s director Terry Loane made a special visit to the cinema.
