Dún Laoghaire Harbour Welcomes Back Drive in Cinema for Autumn Screenings
Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company in partnership with Underground Cinema have today (24.09.14) launched the return of the Drive-in Cinema to Dun Laoghaire Harbour this autumn. The Drive in is located inside the standage area of the Ferry Terminal at Dún Laoghaire Harbour.
Hollywood favourite ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ will kick off the screenings on Saturday (27.09.14) at 7.15pm followed by classic rom-com ‘Dirty Dancing’ at 10.15pm. There will be a further forty-six screenings over the course of the autumn leading right up to 8th December.
Tickets can be booked online at www.underground-cinema.com/drive-in-movies or at the Drive in on the day, and each screening will take up to 80 cars. A total of 20 pedestrian tickets are also available for each screening. On arrival, audience members check in at the Drive-in and will have the opportunity to order snacks including pizza from Dún Laoghaire pizzeria ‘Bits and Pizzas’. Staff will then direct cars to their parking location where the audience can tune into the radio frequency displayed on the screen.
Commenting today, Tim Ryan, Operations Manager at Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company said: “One of our key responsibilities in Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company is to maintain and enhance the recreational value of the Harbour. The drive in cinema was a huge success over the St. Patrick’s bank holiday weekend and bringing it back to the Harbour has been an exciting undertaking for us. It will undoubtedly deliver some spin-off benefits to the town. The Harbour has such potential as a tourism destination and we anticipate a great level of activity over the course of the autumn.”
