See You at the Pictures! is a new documentary from Planet Korda Pictures in association with RTÉ and BAI. They are looking for interviewees to talk about their experiences of cinema-going in Ireland. They will be traveling the country with our camera crew throughout November. We’ll be coming to a town near you soon so please do come out and share your memories of going to the pictures with us.
All the information they gather will eventually be used to build up a picture of the history of cinema in Ireland. They plan to create a website which will feature an interactive map of the country with the locations of all the old cinemas marked, with links to information and stories on that cinema. you can get involved in this nationwide project and get in touch!.
They want your cinema stories. Any decade or genre welcome.
Did you go on your first date with your husband of 50 years to the movies? Or did you bring your new girlfriend last week? What was the first film you ever went to see? Was your heart stolen by James Dean or Jimmy Stewart? Were you terrified by Jaws, or thrilled by Star Wars? Do you remember the days when films were heavily censored? Or when the travelling cinema came to town? Maybe your parents told you their own tales of going to see the classics...
