This Dublin Cinema Is Having An Entire Day Of Free Movies Next Month


We love a good cinema outing; the warm salty popcorn, being able to gorge on Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and checking out all the upcoming movie trailers before the actual flick.

Ugh, what a treat. But it can get pretty expensive when you start to add up tickets and treats.

So when we saw that the IFI are doing an entire day of free screenings, well, it’s a gift from all of the Gods.

To celebrate their 25th birthday, they’re hosting an open day on the 16th September with FREE films alllllllll day long, ranging from modern masterpieces to classic films we loved as a kid.

Here’s the full schedule:

13.00 The Mighty Ducks

13.15 The Big Sleep

13.30 Speedy

15.10 Star Trek: The Motion Picture
