Tommy and his staff are old and dear friends of the Festival. As well as opening up the cinema to the festival every year, Cinema Killarney, in association with KIFF, hosts an arthouse film club every Tuesday night. This shows a huge commitment to getting quality, independent films to an audience that might not otherwise see them. The cinema is one of the few remaining independently owned cinemas in Kerry, no small feat in an era when it is increasingly hard for cinemas to stay afloat. KIFF is absolutely delighted to have Cinema Killarney as their main venue.
