Covid News Update


Organised Outdoor & Indoor Events

The country is currently at Level 5 which essentially means that no organised outdoor or indoor  events can take place.  Realistically the country needs to be at Level 2 before we can organise a public event outdoors or a private event in the homeplace.  There really is no point in asking us to make an exception, we will not be breaking the rules. 

Having said that, we have seen the rules change a number of times over the past year maybe things may losen up with the structure of the levels as the vaccine.  We shall keep you updated as hear things

Drive In Cinemas

A pop up drive in cinema cannot operate under Level 5 conditions.  We are currently seeking clarification on Level 4/2 and we will update when we hear more.  Our gut feeling is that the country needs to be at Level 3 before drive in's can operate again.

Drive In Cinema and The Silent Movie Company Available 2021

We have been inundated with requests with regard to providing a Drive In Cinema Service.  As a result of your requests we have invested heavily and we are about to launch Ireland's first Silent Movie Company.  Very similar to Silent Disco, SIlent Movies uses the same concept.  Each passenger in each car will be issued with a set of Silent Cinema headphones. We use state of the art fully rechargeable LED headphones with powerful transmitters to ensure perfect soound quality.​

The steps in our headphone hygiene process

All of our headphones are cleaned throughly using anti-bacterial wipes.  After using the wipes we use a soft cloth to remove any potential streaks left behind by the wipes.    


Typically you would need a broadcasting licence when you are operating a drive in cinema.  The application for the licence can take up to three months. and costs arond €1,000  You do not require a broadcasting licence for the use of our headphones.

What you do need is a film licence for your event.  If your event is a non commercial event we can apply for licence for you, if your event is a commerical event you will need to apply for the licence yourself.  For non commercial events for under 75 cars the licence fee would be €350.  For commercial events your licence fee would be a minimum guarantee of €350  or 35% of the box office, whichever is the greatest.

  • Take your time organising your event.  We would suggest considering onscreen advertising.  Selling adverts on the big screen is a great way to help cover your costs.

  • Set up your own shop and sell sweets, popcorn and drinks.

  • Hold a raffle on the night.

  • Consider doing more then one screening.  A double bill can work out really well financially 

Screening Time

You need dusk or darkness to screen outdoors.  To work out your ideal screening time, google the sunset time for the day you want to screen.  When you get your result, add 30 minutes on to this.  Its pointless asking can the screening be hosted any earlier then this time.  It just won’t work.

Terms and Conditions

  • Technicians are available for one screening only.  For multiple screenings on the same day there will be an additional charge of €150 

  • We require a 50% deposit to secure your booking.  This deposit is non refundable except in circumstances where the screening is cancelled due to bad weather.

  • The balance is due one week before the screening takes place. 

  • If you cancel the event within seven days of the booked date a 100% cancelation fee applies.

It's really important to note that in order to run a successful outdoor screening you must have dusk or darkness.  A screening in daylight is just not possible, even with our most powerful cinema projectors.  For an outdoor screening during day light hours you would need to use an LED screen.  These screens are extremely expensive to hire but if you do have the funds to hire an LED screen (they can be up to €2,000 a day), we highly recommend a company called Mongeys.  You can visit their website here


In order for you to find out what time you can screen on the date you have in mind you should visit this website.  When you visit this website use the tabs to select the month you want to screen.  Down the left hand side of the screen you will see the dates for that particular month.  On the columns on the top of the chart you want to look for the column marked Nautical Twilight End.  This is the time that you will be able to screen from.  In the example below you will see that if we were looking to do a screening on February 14th, ideally we should be looking at screening any time after 1810.

Film Licencing

You need a licence to screen a film in public either indoors or outdoors.  It doesn't matter if you are trying to raise funds or the event is for charity you must pay the appropriate licence fee.


Under Republic of Ireland Copyright Law, if you wish to screen of a film to audiences outside of the cinema or their home circle (known as non-theatrical film screenings), you must acquire the consent of the copyright owner or their representatives before doing so. Film copyright ownership is generally held by the film studio or distributor (that has produced the film).  OutdoorMovies.ie prices do NOT include copyright licence fees which can vary depending on whether or not your event is a commercial or non commercial event.


If your event is a non commercial event OutdoorMovies.ie can apply for a licence for you which is typically around €205 inc VAT (depending on your potential audience size).  If your event is a commercial event OutdoorMovies.ie can advise what the procedures are to obtain a commercial licence.  It is relatively straight forward and not at all complicated.  Typically the film agent will look for 35% of your box office


If you intend screening movies in your own home, a licence is not required for these sorts of screenings.
