Say hello to your little friend... usheru.

Irish people love to go to the cinema. That's a science fact, proven by fancy science experts, in a fancy science lab.


Just look at them there, hard at work...

Whether it's with family, friends, or even on their own, it really doesn't matter; every weekend, you're guaranteed to find picture-loving people heading to the cinema, up and down the country.

This free new app, developed and designed by fellow film-loving fans, has created a shortcut that will allow you to book cinema tickets in just three clicks, view trailers, check cinema times and, most importantly, find the best prices for you.

Did we mention it's free? Because it is.


As well as that, the app will help you discover brand new films based on your personal tastes, while simultaneously showing you the best deals and offers available at your local cinemas.

Look, even BB-8's impressed, and that astromech droid is notoriously hard to please.

As the talented team behind usheru say, "the cinema is more than just a place to watch a film. It's a night out where film is the beautiful centrepiece. You lovingly watch a story being told, without distractions, with friends and a cheeky treat or two."

"So our little band of film-lovers, film professionals and te(ch)xperts decided we wanted to promote film in cinema. We sat down with people who ran cinemas, people who make films and people who promote films."

"We also listened to you and came up with usheru."


"We want everyone to win by getting more people to go to the cinema."
