Abbey Cinema

Located in Abbeyfeale, County Limerick. Built in 1945 it is listed in the Kinematograph Year Books 1949 to 1971 and was operated by the Tobin Bros. It was equipped with a Kalee sound system. It is not known when it closed but was derelict in the 1980’s. In 2013 a local ‘tidy town’ group gave the disused fa├žade a facelift. It is a Listed building.

It was announced in November 1945 that the Abbey would be open in a matter of weeks. The cinema also had a ballroom attached which opened on 5 May 1946 with the Kingdom Dance Band performing. Like the old Abbey it was run by the Tobin Brothers. It has been derelict since the 1980s and is a listed building. Contrary to the above it was listed in the Kine Year Books from 1949 until 1971!
