Dirty Dancing Open-Air Cinema

Location icon white Merrion Square Thu 10 Sep 2015, 7pm to 10:15pm

Our next screening is a sing-along and dance-along classic! This Thursday we are screening DIRTY DANCING in the beautiful Merrion Square. Are you ready to swoon at the topless Johnny Castle? Sing along to The Time Of My Life? Try the Swayze Lift on the grass of Merrion Square? (not recommended by Happenings)


So invite your friends and family, grab the picnic basket and some cosy blankets and come and enjoy Dirty Dancing under the stars.

Free Icecream?!! And once again we also have the lovely people from BEN AND JERRY'S GIVING OUT FREE ICECREAM!! Gosh, aren't we good to you. They will be asking for signatures for the climate change petition to take positive action in Paris at COP 21 this December. Maybe this year we will see some significant action from our global leaders. Learn more about this at http://www.cop21.gouv.fr/en
