Free Open Air Cinema Screening In Town Park Is Booked Out

Posted by


Sing Street will be screened in the Town Park on Friday night.

THAT’S a popular movie!

The Summer Open Air Cinema season returns to the Town Park tomorrow night and there’s not a ticket to be found for the first offering.

Presented by Kerry Film Festival in association with Féile na Bláth/The Park Festival, the huge comedy hit ‘Sing Street’ has proved such a draw that it’s booked out, with up to 300 people expected with their deck chairs and blankets.

Although, with the weather expected to be nice and balmy 14 or 15 degrees and dry it looks like you’ll be fine.

The ‘Summer Open Air Cinema’ programme is in its third year and Kerry Film Festival will be bringing it to stunning parks and locations around the county.

Admission to the screening was by free pre-booked tickets from a website and as of yesterday morning they were gone.

If you were lucky enough to get one, make sure to read the top tips below before coming along…

1. All films start once dark usually 10pm approx (slighty earlier if it is dark or sometimes a little later if it’s not dark enough), bring a picnic and make a night of it! Gates will be open before the screening but the screening can’t operate before it gets dark. (That is how it is designed!)

2. Don’t forget to bring lots of blankets and warm clothes. As you know, it gets chilly at night so make sure to wrap up!

3. Entry and Exit will be via the Park Gate opposite the Tourist Office on Denny Street ONLY. (This entrance/exit may change for operational needs and we will advise)

4. No pets allowed

5. No footballs allowed

6. If you have a deck chair or camp chair, feel free to bring it with you.

7. Our ‘Summer Open Air Cinema’ screenings are suitable for kids (8+ yrs old) too but must be accompanied by an adult. The onus is on parents to decide if a screening is suitable for their child.

8. Sorry, no alcohol allowed.

9. These screenings take place in Public Parks, so please be good to the environment, respect your town, and take everything home.

10. There is no parking on the grounds

11. Finally, don’t forget the insect repellent!

The festival reserves the right to refuse admission. Please pay attention to the stewards instructions. They are there for your safety.
