A large hall on the Glanmire side of Cork City centre, the Coliseum Cinema was opened on 9th September 1913.
I was working as projectionist there for three weeks, beginning at the end of November 1963. Most of Cork was draped in black and mourning the death of President Kennedy. The cinema did terrific business every day of the week which quite surprised me after my previous experiences of less consistent Welsh cinema patronage. People who wanted balcony seats were booking a week in advance, whilst we turned people away every night. The film we were showing was “Rooney”, the unexciting life story of a Dublin dustman – starring John Gregson.
The Coliseum Cinema was closed on 4th April 1964 with “The Man in the Iron Mask”. In 2009, there is a Coliseum Leasureplex operating at 1 McCurtain Street, which consists of a bowling alley, Zoo and Lazer centre. This could be the former Coliseum Cinema? but more likely a newer building on the site?
