Commodore Cinema

In Strabane, County Tyrone, the Commodore Cinema is listed in the 1937 Kine Year Book as being operated by Wilton and Barry, who also operated the towns' 500-seat Palidrome Cinema (which was listed as closed). By the 1953 edition it was being run by Commodore Cinemas (NI) Ltd., same in the K.Y.B for 1966.

According to an article in the ‘Derry Journal’ in July 1998 the Commodore Cinema closed “over a decade ago”. It is now (November 2013) Commodore Bingo and Amusements. Regrettably, there is nothing inside to indicate the building’s cinematic past. (My photographs were taken in September 2008.)
