Retro Drive-in brings the classics to your car for the holidays


We at Film In Dublin love movie experiences of all kinds whether it’s heading along to the cinema for some classic programming, attending a film festival at the local library, chilling at home with the latest Netflix release or enjoying an open air cinema in one of Dublin’e beautiful parks. One of the more unique film-going experiences in Ireland, the Retro Drive-in has several classic film screenings for Halloween and Christmas announced as 2017 moves into its final stages. Usually aking place in Bray, technically the drive-would fall just outside the fair city of film where we like to confine our coverage, but sure look. Your car is in Dublin isn’t it? And this year, the Retro-Drive in has a new venue in Dublin for you to drive it on out to. If you want to see some classic films in an old-school way, check out the programme of the Retro Drive-in for the holidays ahead.

The Leapardstown Racecourse is the new venue for the Retro Drive-in for their series of screenings this October and December. Located off Exit 15 on the M50, this location will host screenings of a number of beloved classics between October 28th-30th for Halloween and December 9th-10th for Christmas. Although tickets for two screenings of Hocus Pocus have sadly already sold out, there’s still plenty of tickets available for films like Ghost, fun for the all the family screenings of the likes of Ghostbusters and Monsters Inc. and once Christmas season rolls around, both Home Alone and Santa Claus: The Movie will be showing.
