Underground Cinema

The Home Of Independent Cinema & Dublins Only Drive In Cinema


About Us

Underground Cinema was formed in back in 2009 initially to showcase the work of independent film makers from all over Ireland.  Since then Underground Cinema has gone on to become one of the most diverse and innovative businesses in the entertainment and film industry.

Below are a list of services and events that the Underground Cinema team are responsible for.

Outdoor Movies

Underground Cinema are the country's leading producer of open air cinema events.  Our screenings follow one simple formula:  a classic film on a big screen in a beautiful or prestigious setting.  We use state of the art screens, digital projectors and bespoke sound equipment to provide a cinema quality visual and audio experience, but with the magic of being under the stars.

When the idea of hosting outdoor screenings on a Greystones beach came up, the one name that people in the industry kept recommending was Underground Cinema.

And sure enough, what felt like an impossible task was suddenly happening, Dave and his crew quickly turning this pipe dream into a blissful reality.  Watching Jaws on that beach was only slightly bettered by Underground Cinema lighting up an old, decrepit hotel as they screened The Shining for us in the La Touche Hotel car park for Halloween.  Always ready to go that extra mile, Underground Cinema made everything just seem easy. Which is what you want with a night out at the pictures...

What a fantastic night Underground Cinema provided for all on behalf our residents association. The screen and sound was brilliant,so good we didnt hear a word from all the children who were totally enthralled by  the" Goonies" ,we cant thank Underground Cinema enough and we are looking forward to the next great movie night.

Eoin Perkins - Dariada Residents Association Fir House

We couldn't believe how successful the event was. The team at Underground Cinema set up in a public green area where we screened Back to The Future to 300 local residents as part of a community day. The feedback from the whole community was fantastic. It brought people of all ages together and brought such a great buzz to the village. I'd highly recommend the guys at Underground Cinema to anyone and look forward to organising our next event with them!

Councillor Rob Power - Naas Electoral Area

‘We hired the OutdoorMovies.ie Drive In Cinema to provide an unusual thank you for our loyal customers. The evening was a tremendous success - it was really well organised. But most importantly, our customers loved it so it was worth every penny and we are thinking of making it an annual event.’

Darren Darker A+Plus Garage Services

‘I can only give OutdoorMovies.ie the highest of praise, they were a pleasure to deal with.  The price was very keen and they organized everything from the renting of the movie to the insurance, they arrived well before the time and had everything up and running in a matter of minutes.  We were having trouble picking a film but the guys gave us some great advice and the audience loved it. We played to about 350 people in an open space, everyone could see and hear the movie clearly.’

Daniel Cronin - Loughrea Arts Recreation & Culture

Thoroughly enjoyable night and very obliging in your brand, your products, or your customer service.

Iain Slater - Slater Designs

Dave and his team in outdoor movies are brilliant to work with! I'd really recommend them to anyone.  We used the service for an annual, outdoor summer event on a farm and the experience was excellent!! Super, hassle free set-up of the screen, the team organised everything so well and their professionalism rang through always. The impact on the evening was huge- a total show stopper and a real focal experience for everyone. What a magical night! Thanks to you all and we will certainly be booking again next year
