The Playhouse Cinema opened in 1929, a conversion of a former chapel. In 1935 a new frontage was added as well as stairs leading to a newly built balcony and the seating capacity was now given as 700. Two more screens were added in 1996 and the seating capacities today are: 78, 158 and 215. The Playhouse Cinema is also home to the Louth Film Club.

Now up and running in Google Maps “Street View” (March 2010). Shot around June 2009, and it’s a shame that the scaffolding here is tarnishing a great view of a wonderful cinema.

Louth Playhouse has now a true coated Silver screen that is now capable of showing 3D in the new Technicolor system. The new Silver screen will not make a difference when viewing 2D film but will make black & white’s crisper. The Playhouse, to celebrate this new feature, will be screening a new print of Orson Welles’s 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane (August 2010).
