As you're no doubt painfully aware like us, cinemas in Ireland have been closed now for quite some time, only reopening briefly during the winter months.

To say it's been a slog to get through January without the usual glut of Oscar movies and cheap-but-thrilling horrors is an understatement. Still, we've all just got to hold on for when cinemas will be reopened, right?

In the meantime, people have been sharing images of their first cinemas around Ireland, and some of the responses and movies watched are hitting everyone right in the nostalgia. Many rural cinemas, sadly, have declined in recent years, while others have been repurposed and a lucky few have even some renovations.

Here's a few of the responses we've seen so far. You can follow the #MyFirstCinema hashtag on Twitter and see them all for yourself.
