St. George's Hall Cinema
No one has favorited this theater yet
Still standing on High Street, opposite Bridge Street, St. George’s Hall has the honour of being the city’s first cinema which had previously not had theatre events. It was located on the upper floor of the building, built in 1881. (It is also one of the few surviving Victorian buildings in the High Street.) It opened, “for animated pictures and high class variety entertainment”, on 17th August 1908 with “Bluebeard”. However, better equipped cinemas soon opened, and film shows ended in 1914.
The hall was used for many years as the Ulster Sports Club and many boxing bouts were staged there. The hall was used for a variety of public functions, but has stood vacant for several years.
