The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

documentary

One Million Dubliners

There's a poignant twist to One Million DublinersAoife Kelleher (director) and Rachel Lysaght (producer) spent several months documenting some of the famous dead residents and living inhabitants of this iconic cemetery. They covered humour such as the lady in love with Michael Collins and the raw sadness of recent bereavement of Danielle Doyle as she brings flowers to her mum's grave. Many towering names in Irish history (Roger Casement, Maud Gonne MacBride) rest among the estimated 1.5 millions souls here. Amongst the folk who carried out the business of working here is the late Shane MacThomais, the exceedingly affable tour guide and resident historian, who exuded a charm and sincerity. This is a simple, on our doorstep story, well told and wonderfully shot. A fitting tribute to the deceased and a thoughtful insight into those living within their shadows. / Zach Joyce

Critical Mass: Halloween Edition

This hallowe'en, you'd be brave NOT to cycle in the city, because the zombie apocalypse is upon us, cycle-style. Dark-eyed and blood-kissed, the undead will be taking to two-wheeled light machinery in order to frighten you slow pedestrians as they coast on by, looking hungry, their rotting stomachs grumbling and grouching for the taste of human flesh. Critical Mass is a monthly cycle that is all about taking back the roads for machines powered by people, rather than fossil fuels. It's about shouting out about the benefits of cycling infrastructure and becoming a coherent cycling movement. So meet them at Stephen's Green, with your fake head tucked under your arm and your bike disguised as a gross, undead horse, if you're psyched for cycling. / Kate Coleman

Best for spookin'!

Spookers be spookin' with Mother & those dutty Pygs in Powerscourt Townhouse this Hallowe'en. For the first time, the townhouse will be creeped out with truly frightening hags, all ripped up in their disco threads, grooving the night away. Over at the Joinery, there will be a Hallowe'en Spectacular with Tarracoír playing an earth-trembling gig, whilst the Grand Social (pictured) will have Kelly-Anne Byrne discospinning you into an early grave. At TBG&S you should be prepared to get the HeeBeeGeeBees when the #1s and a load of mad creative yolks will be bringing the studios crashing down around your Spock ears. Dress up, creep it up, and party it up. / Kate Coleman

gig

The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow

Step onto the carousel. Watch the ringmaster doff his hat. Watch him parade around the stage, sending his coat-tails whipping in the hot air, the crowd shuffling its feet a little harder and a little louder as each twang on the guitar and beat of the drum sends vibrations through everything in the room. Become a part of the ‘carnival of freaks’ that is the Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow, a bombastic boombox of a show that is uniquely indescribable as it is uniquely brilliant. Some seriously impressive musical chops, from guests like R.S.A.G to Jerry Fish himself, make this one of the genuinely best live experiences you’ll see in Ireland. The carousel will swing you around until all you can see are the spinning lights. Step on./ Hugh Torpey

Dead Beats

This isn't an accusation, it's a fact. Come Friday, the Science Gallery will be packed to the brim with dead beats. Popping up amongst the exhibits in their current Blood exhibition, there will be performances from electro-gods Ships,and little xs for eyes. With spoken word performances, comedy, Ed Hick from J Hicks & Sons doing a very special black pudding demonstration, and general ghastly ghouliness. It would be churlish to try and protest that science ain't cool. In this case, the Nutty Professor is a hipster lifestyle choice, not a ride at Chessington World of Adventure, so backcomb your hair, steal a lab coat from a student, and get spooked, Science Gallery style. / Kate Coleman

The Hunter's Gathering

The Generator Hostel is hosting one of this Hallowe'en's wildest rave-ups, by bringing over the incredible tune-merchants, Wolf + Lamb from Brooklyn, NY. They've stormed sets here before, and this time will outdo them all, so get on top of their Soundcloud and Boiler Room mixes so you're schooled before the gig. They'll be supported by Dale Howard, deep house aficionado, being flown over the sea from the UK, and Generator regular Lorcan Mak. Our very own This Greedy Pig DJs will also be bringing booty to the floor. Dress to impress - think Mona the Vampire all grown up. Glam'n'fangs. Win Tickets / Sarah Keane

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Extravaganza

Let’s do the time warp again ‘cos it’s time for all you sweet transsexual Transylvanians (and anyone else so inclined) to dust off your corsets and don your red lippie as the classic cult musical gets its annual Halloween airing while the fans dress as the characters, sing along, do the dances and add their own effects during certain scenes. It stars a very young Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as newlyweds whose car breaks down. They seek help from a household full of mysterious characters including Tim Curry’s Dr Frank N Furter and have a night of debauchery and sexual awakening to one of the catchiest soundtracks ever. With a post movie performance from Ms Dolly Potts this will probably be the most fun you will ever have while wearing only lingerie and you will be singing Touch Me for days afterwards. / Frances Winston

The 2 Bears

The 2 Bears are responsible for the kind of uninhibited, poppy, clubby music that is sometimes tough to come by these days. They make the kind of tunes that scream, "take your shoes off and dance!" These teddy bears - Joe Goddard and Raf Randall, are both perhaps better known for picnicking with Hot Chip and 1965 Records, respectively, but their anthemic stylings have taken on a life of their own with tunes such as Angel (Touch Me), The Birds & the Bees, and Be Strong, and the latest release to haunt every self-respecting music mag, and, indeed, the Le Cool office, Not This Time. So, if you fancy a Bear Hug - we swear - they don't mean anything kinky by it, haul ass to the Opium Rooms and dance until the bears come home. / Sarah Keane

Mr. Turner

If you're a sentient human being, then the chances are that you are familiar with J.M.W. Turner's iconic watercolour landscapes and the indelible imprint they have left on art and culture. However, you're probably not all that au fait with the man behind the easel. In Mr. Turner, Mike Leigh presents episodes from the artist's life to form some sort of portrait of the man himself. Eschewing the traditional biopic approach, this isn't a film depicting the so-called "greatest hits" of Turner's life. Instead, it's a finely directed and understated portrait of an irascible visionary played by Timothy Spall. As Turner, Spall fully inhabits the role, emitting every gutteral noise imaginable in the process. the His wondrous, sensitive performance is a warts-and-all portrait of the man - eccentricities, shortcomings and all. / Amy O'Connor

Banter Present: Meet the Commish

The latest installment in Jim Carroll & Co.’s always interesting panel talks welcomes Dublin’s very first Commissioner for Startups, Niamh Bushnell, in for a chat. We have a Commissioner for Startups, you ask? We do indeed and, terrific title aside, Bushnell’s key task during her initial two-year contract is to boast about how awesome Dublin is to anyone who’ll listen - a tech version of Le Cool if you will. Well, that’s the simple explanation. In addition to helping domestic startups develop and expand their business network Bushnell will work at enticing international companies to set-up a base in the capital (how many times will corporation tax be mentioned?). It’s a challenging but intriguing brief for the serial entrepreneur. Adding a southside twist to their game, this will be Banter Uptown’s first gathering at MVP. / Brian Keane

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler covers what we hope is the American phenomena of human disaster reportage, wherein police radio lines are tapped into, and crews of cameramen speed between car crashes and murder scenes, looking for gore and misery, all for personal gain. With none of the ethics of journalism, this film follows sociopath Louis (Jack Gyllenhaal) as he finds his calling in this macabre world. We see him choose to move bodies, and deny medical assistance to victims all in the name of a good camera-shot, and finally become truly warped, and manipulate the police, his employee, and the safety of innocent people all in the name of the money shot. This is a thriller which frightens in its realism, and leaves you wondering about just how desensitised we are to gore, suffering, and tragedy. Consider this film Drive, for the person who prefers their film a little wordier. / Kate Coleman
