Odeon Stillorgan

The original Ormonde Cinema in Stillorgan opened in 1954 and was at that time part of the independant Kavanagh chain of cinemas. Declining attendance saw the cinema close in 1978 and sold to developers. The original cinema was demolished as part of a shopping centre development.

On 5th February 1983 a new Ormonde Cinemas opened as part of the Stillorgan Shopping Centre development. The new Ormonde Cinema was the first purpose built three screen cinema in Ireland.

In 1997 the cinema was extended and rebuilt as a seven screen cineplex. It was operated by the Movies@ chain. In 2011, it was taken over by the UCI chain and renamed UCI. By 2013, it had been re-named Odeon

Perhaps this will help.

While the original Ormonde faced the street directly, the redeveloped cinema complex is accessed from a short (private?) lane and the entrance is now at right angles to the main road.

Passing today the LED sign said that a new digital projection system was in operation in all cinemas.

The Cinema was advertised in the Irish Times on April 9th 2014 as for sale in excess of E3.5m. The current tenants Ashbourne Cinemas trading as Odeon are unaffected.
