Cinema Together


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. 

On the player today is the trailer for Dublin International Film Festival. Also, movie reviewer Brian Lloyd chats to Jamie Dornan, Judi Dench and Caitríona Balfe, plus director Kenneth Branagh, about the multi-award nominated story ‘Belfast’.

Next, Eoghan Cannon chats with stars of ‘The King’s Man’ Ralph Fiennes and Tom Hollander about the latest entry in the Kingsman series.


Movies on the Big Screen. Childhood memories. Great Dates. The Most Legendary Stories. We love that special place cinemas hold in a community, and the power of a shared movie-watching experience.

To celebrate this once again, we partnered with Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival #VMDIFF22 (23/2 – 6/3/22), and were in the happy position to run a series of ticket giveaways for festival movies of your choice.

All you needed to do was complete our form to enter into a draw . We’ve given away the final festival prizes today, Friday 4th March 2022, but if you’d like to still complete the form we’re always interested to hear about your cinema-going.

If you’re a fan of social media we’d love you to please continue to use #HelloBigScreen on Twitter and Instagram when you’re out at the cinema.


  • Entrants must be aged 16 or over
  • Thanks for your entry



    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, some people are still directly affected too.

    We understand you may want to know what safeguarding measures are still being implemented now that cinemas are fully reopen. These include the following:

    • Longer deep cleaning of auditoriums between screenings
    • Wearing of face coverings inside the cinema when not eating or drinking
    • Ticket purchase in advance
    • Requests for cash-free payments
    • Hand-sanitising stations
    • Perspex screens
    • Social distancing encouraged in various areas as per other indoor retail and entertainment locations
