Cosey Midiplex Cinema

Located in Kanturk, County Cork. The Cosy Cinema has a very plain 1930’s style frontage that is typical of Irish small town and rural cinemas. It was operating from 1930 with 300 seats. The proscenium was 24 feet wide.

However, the hall has now received considerable renovation and this includes a magnificent update to the former plain facade. The cinema frontage bearing a splendid illuminated film style sign and being tastefully painted in a rich red colour.

The inside, which the management describes as ‘midiplexed’, contains three well fitted out screens that have the benefit of Dolby sound and 3D projection.

The Cosey Midiplex Cinema was closed in March 2013.

The Cosy is believed to have been built around 1930 by Jeremiah O'Sullivan and last appears in the Kine Year Book of 1949. Its entry is replaced by the Ormonde from 1949 although this is stated as being on Strand Street! The 400-seater was run by James Kavanagh along with the other Ormondes and had a GB Kalee sound system installed. In 1976 Michael and Mary O‚ÄôRiordan became the owners and reverted back to the Cosey which opened on 2 October 1977. It was twinned around 1990 and soldiered on until 2 March 2013 when it closed with ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ and ‘The Last Stand’. It is currently on the market. More info at:
