At Cork International Hotel, we do miss our Family Date Nights. We had a bumper movie schedule planned in our Cinema Room for the Easter weekend, but you’ll have to make do at home until lockdown is lifted! With this in mind, we asked Eoghan Murphy, our Deputy General Manager to put together his list of Easter movies for you to watch at home as a family when you finally run out of Easter crafts, baking and egg hunts.
Watch the following movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney Plus, or see the weekend’s TV listing at the end.
