The Ormonde Cinema in Greystones is also closed, after operating in the balcony area of the original cinema only for some years. A funeral parlour shared part of the stalls in the latter years.

The closure of the Ormonde, Greystones got a fair amount of publicity, as the cinema is used in brief exterior series of shots in an episode of the TV comedy series “Father Ted”. Without giving away all of the plot, the efforts of Fr. Ted and Fr. Dougal to protest (under instruction) about an “unsuitable” film have a perverse effect!

That Ormonde is in Greystones, not Arklow
