3. Belfast Vintage Cinema

Travel back in time and get a ticket for Ireland’s smallest cinema, The Tudor. This weekend the showing will be the classic John Wayne flick, The Quiet Man. If tickets are sold out, the cinema will be showing different films throughout the year so you’ll have an excuse to come back.
