Movie lovers are in for a treat from today (Friday) - as the brand new and unique luxury five screen Park Road cinema - complete with the latest Barco Laser projection technology and a MAXX Recline screen - finally opens.

There's been great anticipation by locals as to what the new state-of-the-art facility will offer - and they won't have to wait any longer as the doors officially open today.

It's also a huge economic boost to the town with the creation of over 25 full and part-time jobs.

“We’re delighted to open our newest cinema in Killarney and can’t wait to welcome the people to the Omniplex experience!" Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas told the Killarney Advertiser.

"The MAXX Recline auditorium with all electric reclining armchairs simply must be experienced. This all-laser projection facility is at the cutting edge of worldwide cinema technology.”

He added that they have worked hard over the last 16 months to ensure their customers across Ireland enjoy a safe cinema going experience.

"We will have the same safety measures in place here in Killarney like online ticketing, reduced auditorium capacity and self-scanning of tickets. Coincidentally, our MAXX Recline screen is naturally well suited to a socially distant world with large fully electric recliner seats and a two metre gap between rows.”

SAFETY

Omniplex’s safety measures include In-Cinema Seat Separation – two metre bubble around each cinema booking. Families and friends may sit beside each other up to a maximum of five guests. Online Ticketing and Shop; tickets may be purchased online and pre-ordering of cinema treats online, for collection, is encouraged. Limited capacity; a maximum of 50 per screen with social distancing also in place in foyers and toilets. Enhanced cleaning regimes; including screen protection at all customer touchpoints. Sanitisation stations in foyers, reduced showtimes, for example only one movie will start and end at a time to facilitate social distancing and extra cleaning.

Headford man’s 1948 Jaguar the star of car run

A staggering 157 classic and vintage cars and motorcycles took part in the 12th annual Car and Honda 50 Run, organised by Ballymac Vintage Club on Sunday.

The O’Riada’s Bar and Restaurant-based event raised money for the nearby Glanageenty Walkways and followed a new for 2022 route via Ballymac, Raemore, Knocknagoshel, Brosna, and Mount Eagle before the finish line in the Mart Yard in Castleisland.

Gerard Healy from Knockysheehan, Headford, Killarney had the oldest cars on the run.

He has owned his 1948 Jaguar Mark 4 saloon for the last seven years.

“This car was manufactured in Coventry after World War Two,” he said. “And it was then shipped to Ireland in kit form to avoid high import duty on complete cars. It was reassembled in Dublin and painted emerald green. This is a Sligo car, the first owner was a Miss Teresa Ferry, it was very unusual for a lady to own a car in those days.”

The car was then sold to a vicar and then a soldier before, somehow, ending up in The Netherlands. There it underwent a full restoration in 1999.

Gerard bought the car from a restorer called Roberto Verboon.

“I was proud to bring the car back to Ireland,” he added.

Thanks to generous support from local businesses and sponsors including O’Riada’s and BG Motors over €500 worth of spot prizes were handed out on the day.

Listry’s Tony and Kay Darmody were prize winners after judges were impressed with their Hillman Minx Convertible.

George Carey from Tralee won the motorcycle award with his finely turned out 1986 Honda 90.
