Event description



presented by Kerry Film Festival in association with KILLARNEY, JULY 4TH FESTIVAL

On a summer evening, there’s nothing quite like watching a movie under the stars. Now in our third year, Kerry Film Festival is delighted to announce our ‘Summer Open Air Cinema’ programme for 2017. Right around the county, we will be bringing our Open Air Cinema to stunning parks and locations for everyone to enjoy.

These FREE events are in partnership with Kerry County Council and the Community Support Fund and we thank them for their continued support.

Our 4th July screening will take place at Killarney House.

BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985) 120 mins- Director: ROBERT ZEMECKIS

In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry.

Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.
