Let’s go to the Pictures! National Cinema day sees tickets priced at just €4 each

On Saturday 2 September, cinemas across Ireland will celebrate National Cinema Day, with admissions at participating cinemas dropping to just €4, reports RTE.

The price includes premium seats, screens and 3D screenings.

The 2023 Initiative is supported by Screen Ireland.

Last year’s National Cinema Day was a huge success in Ireland with over 200,000 visitors on that single day, making it the biggest cinema day of the year. The industry is looking forward to welcoming more viewers to the big screen for National Cinema Day 2023.

It is estimated that approximately 99% of cinemas will participate in the initiative, which will offer viewers a variety of new releases and the latest releases, including family favourites that the whole family can enjoy when schools reopen.

Cinemas in every county participate, meaning viewers have easy access to big-screen entertainment in their home counties.

With a hit summer and the huge popularity of both Barbie and Oppenheimer, the Irish cinema industry has come together to celebrate the film festival and its important place in Irish life, reports RTE.

For many years, Ireland had the highest cinema attendance per capita in Europe.

Lee Cronin, the highest-grossing Irish filmmaker at the global box office this year with Evil Dead Rise, said: “There’s nothing like the magic of going to the movies. The shared communal experience of enjoying films as they were meant to be seen – on the big screen with a captive audience, is one of my favourite things to do. I’m really looking forward to celebrating National Cinema Day by catching as many films as I can, and re-watching some of the great movies I’ve already enjoyed at the cinema this year,” reports RTE.

Popular titles will also continue to screen on the day, including The Equalizer 3; The Blackening; Passages; Barbie; Oppenheimer; The Meg 2: The Trench; Theater Camp; Gran Turismo; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem; Blue Beetle; Strays and Haunted Mansion.

Participating cinemas include: Arc Cinema, Carrick Cineplex, Century Cinemas, Cineworld; Eclipse Cinemas, Eye Cinema, Gate Cinemas, IFI Cinemas, IMC Cinemas, Light House Cinema, Movies@ Cinemas, Odeon Cinemas, Omniplex Cinemas, Pálás Cinema, Reel Cinemas and Vue Cinemas, reports RTE.
