The Star Cinema is believed to have opened in 1919 when the first film to be shown was “Knocknagow”. It was run by Mr Brady proprietor of the Connaught Cycle Works and was situated behind Paddy Fahy’s. It closed near the end of 1919 for improvements and reopened on 6th March 1920. It was extremely popular and had packed houses most nights. Youngsters were admitted for four pence on weeknights. It is not listed in the Kine Year Books after 1923, the year in which ‘Grand Dances’ were held there. A couple of films that were screened in November 1921 included “An International Marriage” and “Toys of Fate”.
