There is just something special about the drive-in movie experience. Sitting in your car watching the silver-screen through your windscreen is an experience like no other, that heady mix of public and intimate that cannot be replicated at home or in cinemas.

The guys at Underground Cinema know this and after the successful launch of Dublin’s first Drive In Cinema over the St Patrick’s Bank Holiday weekend in Dun Laoghaire earlier this year, they are back. Only this time they will be bringing the Drive In back to Dun Laoghaire in September, but before they do the Drive In will tour the country from mid August for four weeks.

Underground Cinema have invested in a new outdoor screen that is three times bigger then the original screen along with state of the art projectors for incredible picture quality. The audio and soundtrack to each movie can be heard through your car radio system providing crystal clarity.

Over the next 5 months Underground Cinema will be bringing an incredible selection of cult/classic films to the big screen. the full list is belowe, but here are the highlights: Jaws, Back to the Future, Avatar, Titanic, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Evil Dead, The Godfather, Star Trek (2009), The Terminator, and many, many more…

Screenings will be held in Cork, Kildare, Limerick, Longford and Dun Laoghaire. Tickets are only available online and are on sale now. It is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
