Virgin Media are hitting the road again this summer with their Drive-In Movie Series. The roadshow will bring music blockbusters Mamma Mia and Bohemian Rhapsody to towns across the country to celebrate the arrival of Virgin Media’s Project Lightning network expansion programme.

Kicking off on August 10th, Virgin Media are bringing their Drive-In Movie Series to Ennis, Dundalk, Wexford, Dungarvan and Dublin. Cinema-goers will be able to watch fan favourites Mamma Mia and Bohemian Rhapsody on Europe’s largest mobile LED screen and have the sound broadcast directly to their car over FM radio.

There will be two screenings in each town and tickets can be booked online at virginmedia.ie/movies. Mamma Mia is the story of a bride-to-be trying to find her real father told using hit songs by the popular 1970s group ABBA and well known faces throughout the movie.  Meanwhile Bohemian Rhapsody is the story of the legendary rock band Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, leading up to their famous performance at Live Aid (1985).

Last year Virgin Media’s Drive-in Movies roadshow was such a huge success it’s was a no brainer to bring it back this Summer. I’m a big fan of both films so can’t wait to see them in this unique way…all guests need to do is bring their car and Virgin Media will provide the popcorn! I pity the cars beside mine as I don’t think I am going to be able to stop myself from singing along!!

We’re delighted to be bringing back our pop-up cinema to towns across the country once again. This year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever with two fantastic movies available to view.
