The Regal cinema in Youghal was the backdrop for the new Downton Abbey Movie last weekend.

Fans of the genre dressed to impress for the screening of the movie at the art deco picture house.

They packed into the venue wearing period costume and upstairs and downstairs apparel on Friday 13 for a charity screening.

The fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation included a reception of fruit punch, cupcakes and canapés.

Make a wish Ireland grant the wishes of children aged between three and seven years living with life-threatening medical conditions, in order to make a difference.

Since 1992 the children’s charity has granted the wishes of over 2,000 children, relying only on the generosity of the public.

The ladies and gentlemen of the Cobh heritage vintage era group ensured lots of fun was to be had on the opening night, with prizes for the best fancy dress.

The film features old favourites from the TV series including Lady Mary played by Michelle Dockery, the Earle of Downton Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt as Anna Bates and Dame Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess.
