IT’S back!

The Summer Open Air Cinema season continues next Friday and this time it’s heading to Lixnaw with a classic normally associated with Christmas.

Presented by Kerry Film Festival in association with Lixnaw Summer Festival, ‘Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory’ will be shown at Lixnaw GAA pitch at 10pm.

These free events are in partnership with Kerry County Council and the Community Support Fund.

Everyone knows the story of Charlie who receives a golden ticket to a factory. Starring the late Gene Wilder it’s a classic movie for all ages. You must register if you want to go so click here to do so.


• If you’re planning to attend one of our events this summer, make sure to read our top tips below before coming along. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

• All films start once dark usually 10pm approx (slightly 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!)

• 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!

• Entry and Exit will be advised in due course.

• No pets allowed

• No footballs allowed (or, since it’s in Lixnaw, hurleys!)

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

• ‘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.

• Sorry, no alcohol allowed.

• There is no parking on the grounds

• Finally, don’t forget the insect repellent! We’ll be among trees and near water so bring something to deter the midges.

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

• Admission to this screening will be limited. Please only book tickets if you plan to attend. Thank you.

• OPEN AIR CINEMA is dependent on fine weather, if inclement weather is forecast, screenings may/will be cancelled. Please keep an eye on social media, Facebook and Twitter.*

These Open Air screenings can only operate once it is dark and once the weather is fine.
