Ryan Centre begins Saturday matinees

As part of the Ryan Centre Theatre and Cinema’s busy autumn programme, film times will be changed to incorporate Saturday matinees.

As at present, films will be shown on a regular fortnightly basis but instead of asking parents to bring their children to films at 6pm on a school night, the alternative will be to come and see a film at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. Films will also be shown on Friday evenings at the usual times.

Now that there is a definite hint of autumn in the air, a trip to the cinema in the afternoon will be a much more attractive and practical alternative for some parents rather than a visit on a week night which ends in a later than usual bedtime.

Children’s films will now be shown at 6pm on Friday evenings and then repeated at 2pm on Saturday afternoons.

October to December children’s films are a mix of 2D and 3D and include Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Justin and the Knights of Valour, Turbo, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and this year’s Christmas blockbuster Frozen.
