THIS Saturday, the Arc Cinema in Ennis will once again offer everyone the chance of a cinema visit from just €4 for National Cinema Day, writes Elaine Tubridy.
Over 99% of cinemas in Ireland have signed up to participate in the event, following the hugely successful first edition last year. Those participating include all major cinema operators and a wide range of smaller cinema operators and venues.
Off the back of 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.
For many years, Ireland has had the highest cinema attendance per capita in Europe. The Republic of Ireland also has the highest screen density per capita of any European country, with an average of one cinema screen per 10,000 people.
“Screen Ireland is proud to support National Cinema Day this year,” said Désirée Finnegan, Chief Executive of Screen Ireland. “We join with the wider industry in thanking audiences for their continued support of Irish film and loyal cinema-going. The support from Irish audiences has made the incredible success of Irish film in the past year possible. We’re delighted to promote the Irish films available to choose from as part of this initiative – and we hope audiences around the country will have a wonderful experience connecting with those stories on the big screen.”
A spokesperson for the Arc Cinema said: “While all the evidence confirms that cinema-going is amongst the most low-cost, best value-for-money leisure opportunies, we also of course recognise that many households are still experiencing significant impacts on their finances and wanted to do our bit to make a trip to the cinema even more affordable for the whole family.”
The Arc Cinema on Parnell Street in Ennis has recently undergone a refurbishment and name change from Empire Movieplex. The refurbishment included new seating and concessions area as well as full upgrading of flooring and finishes. General Manager Cathal O’Sullivam says “We hope that National Cinema Day 2023 will be another huge success and look forward to welcoming audiences back to our cinemas as they take advantage of this fantastic offer with friends and family.”
