Irish Film Institute (IFI)

Located in the Temple Bar area of Dublin city centre. Originally built in the early-18th Century for the Quakers as a Friends Meeting House. It was converted into the 2-screen Irish Film Centre in May 2000. Architectural firm for the rehabilitation of the building were O'Donnell & Toumey. Seating is provided for 260 in Screen 1 and for 104 in Screen 2. The building also houses the Irish Film Archive and there is a café/restaurant and bookshop.

In 2003 it was re-named Irish Film Institute, commonly known as IFI. It operates as a cinema club, which enables it to screen uncensored films. A third screen has been added.

The Irish Film Institute is Ireland’s national cultural institution for film.

At the rear of the building on Meeting House Square the Open Air Cinema operates during the evenings on summer months.
