Cinema Killarney, on the East Avenue Road, is preparing to reopen after weeks of lockdown. Owner/Operator Tommy Cooper confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser that he is preparing to reopen the popular movie theatre next Friday (December 18) and is currently working behind the scenes to make it happen.

He is yet to finalise a programme of events, but has hopes to have festive blockbusters like ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ and ‘Dreamland’ as listings by next Friday.

The popular movie club ‘The Art House’ is planned to be shown on screen Tuesday next (December 15). ‘The Art House’ is aimed at movie buffs and show films that are not on general release. It is run in conjunction with the Kerry Film Festival and Cinema Killarney is a festival partner.

“'The Art House' season was put off over the pandemic but I am really hoping to have it back next week,” Mr Copper told the Killarney Advertiser. “I am talking to the distribution houses and hope to have some of the big movies on show in time for Christmas. I have to prepare as best I can and hope that people have the confidence to go to the cinema in these times.”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
