Carrigtwohill: Movie Junction

movie junction image showing a signpost and old american carMovie Junction received grant aid from SECAD towards the purchase of a canopy system, security system and silent electric heaters at their drive in cinema in Carrigtwohill. Movie Junction is a drive in movie. The project promoters came across the drive in cinema concept in Germany. This approach creates a new entertainment option for the people of Cork, whilst enhancing Cork’s reputation with tourists. Agreements have been secured with movie distributors such as Warner Brothers, to ensure they will be in a position to show blockbuster movies. Stephen Redmond and Ellie Redmond are the directors of Drive In Cinemas Ireland Ltd. Based in Fota Retail Park, Carrigtwohill, Movie Junction is the first drive in cinema of its kind in the world. The traditional issues associated with Drive In Cinema of restricted views, fogging windows, rain and cold have been eliminated in Movie Junction though the provision of tiered rows, reclined parking bays, silent electric heaters and waiter service.
