IFI Press Release: June 13th, 2016
IFI Open Day returns on Saturday, July 2nd for a full day of FREE films and activities at the Irish Film Institute in Temple Bar.
A key event in every cineaste’s calendar, the IFI Open Day is a chance for film fans to sample a programme of films specially curated to show the wide range of cinema on offer at the IFI all year round – from catching an exclusive preview of Nicolas Winding Refn’s acclaimed Neon Demon to enjoying a 35mm screening of 1933 ‘scream queen’ classic, King Kong – as well as exploring other facets of the organisation, from the IFI Irish Film Archive to its projection facilities. This year, there will be a NEW IFI Open Day ticketing system: film tickets will be released an hour before each film’s scheduled screening time. Simply queue at the relevant desk in the IFI foyer to pick up tickets (maximum two tickets per person per film) and then enjoy your free movie.
