Laois hotel set to host ‘Midlands Drive-In Movies’

Who doesn’t love a good movie?

If you have missed that big screen experience over the past few months then there is some fantastic news coming your way.

You can hop in the car with the kids and bring them to the Killeshin Hotel in Portlaoise to watch the all-time classic, Shrek!

On Sunday, June 28, you can join Shrek, Donkey and all the gang as they embark on their first adventure from the comfort of your car.

The movie starts at 4.30pm. Later in the evening, at 7.30pm, there will be a showing of the 70s classic, Grease, starring Olivia Newton John and John Travolta.

Drive In Movies have become increasingly popular as way of getting that big screen fix as people look at ways of experiencing some of the pass-times they had before the country went into lockdown.

Those going to the drive-in movie can watch the Hollywood classic and children’s favourite, Shrek, from the comfort and safety of their cars.

They can also have the added treat of ordering a meal from the Killeshin Hotel that can be delivered directly to their cars or collected from the hotel.

So, they can enjoy the movie and their food at the same time!

All details, including times and prices are available on the Midlands Drive In Movies social media pages.
