Throughout the past few evenings this week, there have been outdoor screenings of some classic movies on the lawn of the Pavillion at Fitzgerald’s Park organised by Cork Film Festival in partnership with Cork City Council. This mini festival will continue each evening throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.
Beatriz, our summer intern from Italy, was at a screening on Wednesday night, and here is what she had to say about the event.
“Yesterday it was the first night of the “Films at Fitzy’s”, an outdoor cinema festival that will take place in Fitgerald’s Park from 29th July to 3rd August. The first screening was “Amélie”, a charming French romantic comedy. The atmosphere at the park was very cosy and cheerful, the audience was very wide and everyone brought his own blankets and cushions to stay warmer and more comfortable while enjoying the movie. You can also bring crisps, popcorn or buy some tea and candyfloss at the stands in the park. It was very fun to share this experience with my host family! The next screenings will include “Amhrán na Mara”, the Irish version of the animation movie “Song of the sea”. It’s possible to book tickets online or to buy them at the park just before the screening (price 5€).”

July 29 Amélie
July 30 Good Vibrations
