Have you eaten lunch at 800 feet above Manhattan, well the Irish have!

For one week only, take your popcorn down the cobble stone streets of Temple Bar to the IFI where award nominated ‘Men at Lunch’ will be showcased in Dublin’s premier alternative cinema. You will be treated to a unique feature length documentary behind one of the most iconic images of the 20th Century.

Entitled ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper’ this famous image depicting 11 steel workers eating lunch during the construction of the Rockefeller Centre is one of the most recognised images today. It was not until 2007 when 2 Irish brothers discovered a framed copy of the picture in Whelan’s pub, Shanaglish that it was to be linked to the story of 2 of the men on the beam that day.
