At the 4th Underground Cinema Film Festival which was held in Dun Laoghaire in September, Underground Cinema imported a giant inflatable screen which was used throughout the festival for indoor and outdoor screenings. It was enormously successful and now Film Festivals from all over Ireland are now looking to use the screen for their own festivals in 2014.

But it’s not just film festivals that are looking to use the screen. The screen is perfect for community centres, youth clubs and leisure centres who are looking to bring something different and exciting to the community. The screen has so many different uses and can be used for:

  • Outdoor/indoor film screenings for kids, teens and adults
