Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas, said, “It’s been a tough year so far for everyone, and we just want to have one magical day that you can tell a funny story about in years to come – let 2020 be the year your local cinema did Christmas 4 months early.

Every year Barnardos Ireland and Barnardo’s NI work with over 30,000 children and families across the island of Ireland.

Suzanne Connolly, CEO Barnardos Ireland stated, “Christmas is a special time for children, but for many vulnerable children, it can be a difficult time,” Mark continued.

“By supporting Christmas in August, not only are people creating wonderful childhood memories, and recalling their own, but they are also supporting Barnardos to help create lasting and happy childhood memories for vulnerable children throughout Ireland.

Since re-opening in July 2020, Omniplex has implemented an extensive strategy to ensure guests can enjoy a safe cinema trip including dynamic in-cinema seat separation, hand sanitizing stations, rigorous cleaning regimes and Perspex at appropriate touchpoints.
