While we're all for the standard munch that normally accompanies our trips to the cinema, sometimes it's nice to channel the sophisticated grown-ups we know we are deep-down.

And it looks like the good folk at Dublin's Light House Cinema are with us on this one and have pulled out all the stops for their screening of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie this weekend.

On Sunday July 3rd, Patsy and Edina fans are invited to get their boozy brunch on in the much-loved Smithfield cinema while checking back in with everyone's favourite BFFs.

The idea of ditching our standard popcorn for smoked salmon, cream cheese, and hummus, while opting for a Bellini over a Diet Coke is appealing to us so much right now, so grab the ladies and 'sweetie darling' all over yourself this weekend.

With a two brunch bundles coming in at a very reasonable €20 to choose from, our Sunday is definitely set!




It was one of our FAVE TV shows of the 90s, and now it's hitting the big screen.

The first trailer for Absolutely Fabulous has arrived, and while it's short, we can see that the movie will probably be a bit mental.

Edina and Patsy are seen on a beach, enjoying the sun, the booze and the men, when a voiceover starts to speak.

"When you must have the best, be sure to choose something cool, something refreshing, something… absolutely fabulous."

The return of the cult classic will see the full cast together again and while most of the details have been kept under wraps, it's rumoured that Kate Moss and Harry Styles will make a surprise appearance. 

The movie is due to hit cinemas on July 19 and we totally just cannot wait! 



Comedy heroines Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are set to reunite for something very exciting indeed… the first ever Absolutely Fabulous movie. 

Jennifer, who both wrote and starred in the hit nineties BBC show, said she always intended to make an Ab Fab movie "before we die" and finally finished the script at the end of last year. In the end, it was a £10,000 (€13,798) bet with Dawn French that spurred her on to finish writing the film, which will begin production this autumn.

"Dawn bet me on live radio a year and a half ago, that if I didn’t write it that year, I’d have to pay her £10,000, which was a good kind of motivator and I just got it in on time. New Year's Eve I gave it to her," explained the actress during an appearance on ITV's Loose Women.

Speaking about her decision to write a film script, Jennifer said she had her doubts. "I think that’s why I didn’t do it for a while. I thought, wouldn’t it be awful if it was awful but now we’re all so old," she admitted. 'Joanna said to me "Do it before we die! We’re all on the brink.'"

After finishing in 1996, Ab Fab was revived again with new episodes in both 2001 and 2012, and Jennifer says the film will bring the whole cast together once more.

"It involves all the main characters and virtually everyone that’s ever been in the series, all those characters, and we’re in London and sometimes we might go to the South of France, I’m hoping," she said.

Earlier this year, Jennifer and Joanna appeared on the Comic Relief Bake Off, which had been filmed the previous summer.

In the end, Jennifer won out over Joanna, Dame Edna and Lulu with (what else?) an Ab Fab themed cake.

We can't wait to see these two back together again.
