See You at the Pictures! is a new documentary from Planet Korda Pictures for RTE. The film-makers are coming to Bundoran in the last week of September and they are looking for your stories and memories to share.

They want to chat with people about their experiences of cinema-going in Ireland, and want to hear stories from across the decades and about all kinds of films.
