Looking forward to Belfast Summer Cinema, Clare Maguire from Belfast One said:

“We are delighted to be bringing back the Belfast One Summer Cinema at City Hall on 16 & 17 July in association with Belfast Film Festival. What a range of films we have on offer – there really is something for everyone.  Movie goers will especially love watching Kenneth Branagh’s award winning film “Belfast” in the heart of the City central to its story – what a special viewing that will be. The summer cinema is part of our Belfast One Summer Days campaign which aims to bring a pop of colour to the city centre through unique experiences. This is going to be a very popular event and I would encourage anyone who wishes to attend to make sure you get your tickets quickly before they sell out.”

Michele Devlin, Director of Belfast Film Festival, commented:

“Belfast Film Festival is delighted to be back and to partner, once again, with Belfast One to present a unique weekend of great films in the open air this July as part of Belfast One Summer Days. We will be filling the grounds of Belfast City Hall with big screen delights, props from the films and cos play. There will be something for everyone so, why not join us and enjoy seeing your favourite films in this beautiful and unique outdoor setting!”
