Share Your Story:

You are also invited to share your personal anecdotes and memories of your cinema-going experiences of the past. We will collect your stories for our archives and for the RTE funded documentary, See You at the Pictures, which is currently in development in association with Planet Korda Pictures.

The documentary will gather a nationally shared experience of cinema-going in Ireland and will also provide a social and cultural archive that will be gathered on the documentary-makers website; www.seeyouatthepictures.com
