CinemaTogether celebrates the power of watching movies together and the special role that cinemas hold in our local communities. They created childhood memories, gave you great dates and wrapped you in the most legendary stories.
Now on this player Brian Lloyd from entertainment.ie interviews the cast of In The Heights; it’s followed by #HelloBigScreen – the welcome back montage currently showing in cinemas as Irish people return to a favourite past-time. Next a short animation outlines the safety protocols at cinemas these days. Finally the player showcases every response posted by visitors to this website when asked how quickly you plan to return to a cinema after reopening.

Cinemas are an important part of our Irish communities. Not only are they the home of a big screen where our imagination is fuelled by creative stories and a gateway to another world, but also the source of a shared experience of amplified emotion, feelings, and wonder. They are a place where people can come together, meet others and, for a few hours, escape day to day life.The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on many areas of our society, many people are still directly affected too.
We understand you may want to know which cinema is open and what changes have been made. There is a range of safeguarding measures being implemented as cinemas gradually re-open including:
- Limiting auditoriums to no more than 50 people at a time
- Keeping seats empty or new space between patrons to facilitate social distancing
- Wearing of face coverings at all times inside the cinema
- Longer deep cleaning of auditoriums between screenings
- Staff management of people flows
- Film timings scheduled to ensure foyers have no more than 50 people passing through at any one time
- Ticket purchase in advance
- Requests for cash free payments
- Hand sanitising stations
- Perspex screens
- Pre-packed food for purchase
