JAMES BOND IS turning do-gooder for a night next month to raise funds for two Irish charities.

A special screening of the new 007 film, Skyfall, will be held at Savoy Cinema in Dublin on 24 October with all proceeds going to LARCC Cancer Support Centre and the Irish Cinema Benevolent Fund.

Tickets for the showing are €50 and attendees will include a goody-bag and a post-film Heineken drinks reception at Grafton Street nightclub Lillie’s Bordello.

The film is not due for general release until 26 October.

Skyfall is the 23rd instalment from the Bond franchise and it sees the loyalty of Daniel Craig’s character to M tested as her past comes back to haunt her. Excited? If not, this might do it:
