On Saturday, 2nd of September, cinemas across the Republic of Ireland will celebrate National Cinema Day with admission tickets at participating cinemas reduced to just €4 (RSP) including 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 admissions for that single day, making it the biggest cinema-going day of the year. The industry is looking forward to welcoming even more visitors to the big screen for National Cinema Day 2023.
Approximately 99% of cinemas in the Republic of Ireland will participate in this initiative, offering a wide variety of new and recent releases for audiences to enjoy, including family favourites that all the family can enjoy as a treat as schools reopen. Cinemas in every county in the Republic of Ireland are participating, meaning easy access for audiences to big screen entertainment in their home county.
Off the back of a blockbuster summer and the massive popularity of both Barbie and Oppenheimer, the cinema industry in Ireland has united to celebrate the ritual of cinema-going and the important place it has in Irish life.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy! See you on Saturday, and remember, book early to make sure you get to the movie of your choice!”
