It was an evening at the movies - but last night's showing came with some Titanic differences.

Set against the backdrop of the iconic Harland & Wolff cranes, more than 1,000 film fans parked on the waterfront for the launch of Drive-In Cinema Belfast.

The city's tragic liner was replaced as the maritime star of the silver screen by a pirate ship as we parked up alongside hundreds of cars in the city's Titanic Quarter to watch 1985 classic The Goonies.
