 What you want is "vlc --intf lirc --fullscreen yourfile vlc:quit".

 Lirc is an interface suited to listen to your remote control commands
 (but you have to use the lirc daemon).

 "vlc:quit" is a special target that won't play a file but will close
 the client.

 If you want the remote control interface "lirc" AND other interfaces
 (like the gnome interface and the kde interface at the same time), use
 "vlc --intf gnome --extraintf kde,lirc".

 If you'd rather not use the lirc interface (because you need your
 remote control translated into keypresses or because your remote
 control isn't supported by lirc), you might consider using the "rc"
 command-line interface instead of "lirc".
