ODEON cinemas

It's International Women's Dya and what better way top celebrate that then by cheering on Marvel's FIRST ever female superhero?

Yep, it's happening and it's not a moment too soon.

So grab your pals and head to ODEON cinemas to enjoy a kick-ass flick led by the amazing Brie Larson.

Marvels first female superhero, Captain Marvel is hitting the screen at ODEON's to its 11 cinemas nationwide  on March 8. 

The Marvel blockbuster stars Brie Larson as an ex-pilot who after an accident gains superpowers and joins an intergalactic team called Starforce.

Brie Larson said, “It’s so interesting, as it’s not something I thought about until I was in the cinema watching Wonder Woman. About two minutes in, I was sobbing and thought, 'Why am I crying so much over this?'''

She continued, ''But it was seeing all of these warrior women who were so self-sufficient. That wasn’t something I identified with growing up – my hero was Indiana Jones. To have the chance to be one example of this is powerful and exciting.''

Our plans for this evening are definitely sorted – Happy International Women's Day one and all. 



On Sunday September 6, the long-awaited Irish sporting event of the year takes place at Croke Park.

The All-Ireland hurling final will see fans from all corners of the country doing their very best to get their hands on tickets to the big match.

Yes, Kilkenny and Galway fans – as well as just hurling fans in general – are all sure to be trying their hardest to get to Croke Park on the big day.

However, if the struggle just cannot be overcome and those tickets just cannot be found (yes, the struggle is real), we may have stumbled upon the perfect solution.

The good people at ODEON cinemas have paired up with the GAA to ensure that no fan feels left out on the big day. In fact, ODEON are giving people the chance to see all the action of the big day for free at a number of their cinemas around the country.

Free (yes, FREE!) tickets for the event are available online now at GAA.tickets.ie and screens will open at 3pm on the big day.

ODEON Cinemas said of the initiative today: “We look forward to welcoming and seeing our screens full of colour with proud supporters of Galway and Kilkenny in their jerseys, but leave the hurleys and sliotars at home!

“We expect that GAA fans from all counties will take advantage of this free family day out across all of our cinemas."

While Kilkenny play for their the Championship title for the 36th time, underdogs Galway haven’t held the title since 1988, so there’s no doubt going to be some enthusiastic supporters around the nation.



It’s the battleground that every couple knows only too well: just WHAT do you go to see in the cinema for date night?

Sometimes, you agree readily and easily on a newly-released flick… on other occasions, the discussion is rather more fraught.

And even when you do finally come to a settlement, there is always the possibility of that tetchy, unforeseen scenario: a sold-out screening.

It’s frankly enough to test even the toughest relationships.

Fear not, however! ODEON Cinemas has come up with a solution – namely its innovative Screen Unseen drive.

Audiences are asked to go to the cinema (nothing new there, granted)… the twist is they never know exactly what they’re going to watch upon arrival.

But ODEON always plans the screenings meticulously, showing movies that get people talking – something out-of-the-ordinary and just a bit edgy, like Whiplash, Nightcrawler, and Selma.

Last night, Me, Earl And The Dying Girl was shown – to great acclaim by those who took the plunge.

A nice bonus is that tickets cost just a fiver AND you’ll save hours arguing over what to go see with your other half.

So we say… trust your judgement and buy a cinema ticket blind. It’s a fantastic way to try something new too.

ODEON Cinemas are located throughout Ireland, so keep your ear to the ground for the next Screen Unseen event, logging on to the website and its Facebook page for more information.
