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, at least as we know them today. (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 1916.
The hall was used for many years as the Ulster Sports Club and many boxing bouts were staged there. The hall is now used for a variety of public functions.
