One of Cork's most popular cultural hubs, Triskel Arts Centre, is reopening to the public this Friday.
The Tobin Street venue has remained closed for over four months due to the Covid-19 crisis.
During the lockdown, however, the venue hosted a series of online events to keep the housebound public entertained.
"It’s been wonderful to see the creativity and ingenuity of artists and arts workers in the online space throughout these last few strange months.
"But nothing compares to the live experience and we are looking forward to welcoming the people of Cork back to our beautiful building," commented Tony Sheehan, Artistic Director with Triskel.
Ahead of the reopening, Triskel has assured patrons that even though things may look a little different, what remains the same is their commitment to providing quality entertainment for the people of Cork.
Social distancing guidelines mean capacity is restricted to just 18 people per screening.
Pre-booking is now essential and the venue can now solely be accessed via South Main Street.
"We’re working hard to make sure the process is as simple and clear as possible so that people can feel comfortable about coming to Triskel.
"Once they feel safe, they can forget the outside world for a few hours and enjoy some great films," said Gillian Hennessy, Marketing Manager with Triskel.
The first film to be screened in Triskel when it reopens later this week isstarring Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson and Valeriia Karaman.
The film centres on two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
It will be screened at 3pm and 7:30pm on Friday, July 24 and Saturday, July 25.
Other films due to be screened next month include the classic film, starring Nicholas Cage and the impressively chilling Me Too era drama .
