“There’s no place like home…”

In 2019, the Irish Film Institute will reveal a new look in our main cinema spaces. Cinemas 1 and 2 will be fully renovated with bigger seats, more legroom, new carpets, acoustic panelling and the roofs throughout the cinemas and foyer will be fixed.
We are inviting our patrons to join us and show their love for the IFI, the Home of Film in Ireland, by joining your fellow film fans and adding your name(s) or that of a loved one, to our newly refurbished Cinema 1.
Seat naming is a fantastic way to demonstrate your own passion for film or celebrate the memory of someone who appreciated the IFI during their lifetime. It also makes for an unusual wedding or birthday gift, and is a very unique way to announce a new arrival into the world. We very much welcome support from our corporate community too. The plaques have been designed by local artists Fiona Snow and Michael Mohler of SNOW Studio.
The refurbishment of our unique 18th century building is a big undertaking and your support will go towards the cost of the renovations. As a charity, it also means that we can continue to channel our revenues into our not-for-profit activities, developing our extensive education programmes across the country and ensuring the preservation of our moving image heritage through the work of the IFI Irish Film Archive.
€300 will see your name in our cinema for the next three years. If you are a business, you can also join at the level of €500 for three years.
Once you have made your booking, our team will be in touch with next steps for your details and to talk to you about how you can add an additional €93 to your donation at no extra cost through tax relief.
You can purchase a seat in the following ways:
Thank you for your support – it means so much to us.
