Listed in the 1939 edition of Kinematograph Yearbook (it’s not listed in 1937) with a seating capacity of 600. It was part of the independant Kavanagh chain of Irish cinemas. Occasional variety was booked and the proscenium was 25 feet wide, the stage 20 feet deep and there were two dressing rooms. Closed its doors in the early-1980’s.
Re-opened again in 1988 as part of the Ward Anderson chain. It was twinned in that year.
It closed again in 2003 and was sold to developers who planned to open a 5 screen multiplex on the site, possibly retaining the facade. Following many planning objections the site still remains idle. The empty building was damaged by fire on 28th February 2016.
