May the 4th be with you when Happenings returns


Episode IV, A NEW HAPPENINGS

It is a period of a grand stretch in the evening. Happenings, striking from Merrion Square, have won their first victory against the evil fuck-all-to-do-cos-the-weather-is-bad. During the battle, Open Air Cinema spies managed to secure secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate IP, the STAR WARS, a sci-fi series with enough power to destroy an entire subculture’s ability to be polite on the internet. Pursued by the Empire’s sinister accountants, Happenings races home aboard their…um…starship? The Luas? Their whatever, custodian of the popular movie that can save their fanbase and restore craic to the galaxy….

 

In case all that wasn’t clear, this May, outdoor entertainment organisation Happenings along with Dublin City Council will present an open air screening of the original Star Wars sci-fi classic – A New Hope. This May the 4th, the film will be showing in Merrion Square. Though this showing of the first in the series coincides with the now ubiquitous pun/marketing gimmick, Happenings have said that a screening of Empire Strikes Back is also likely a little further down the line, so stay tuned for further screening news.

Gates for this screening will be open from 8.30pm with the film kicking off when the sun goes down (approx 9.30pm). As always with Happenings, there will be teas, coffees, sweet and savoury treats available for all. Slowly but surely it seems like it’s getting brighter out there, but you hardly need the wisdom of a Jedi master to know to bring blankets, chairs and warm clothing in this country. A tauntaun might keep you cosy but remember, they don’t s smell a bit ripe.

Tickets for this event cost €5 and are available now from the ticket link below. Tickets may be available from the gate but a sell out is likely.

Happenings film screenings are strictly alcohol free events.

Tickets available now from usheru HERE.

May the force etc, etc…
