In Cookstown, County Tyrone, the Picture House is listed in the 1931 Kine Year Book with the operator as Cookstown Electric Picture House Ltd. In the 1940 and 1953 editions the proprietor is C. H. Donaghy of Omagh. The proscenium was 24ft wide. Following a fire in the late-1970’s or early-1980’s the cinema was refurbished and reopened, rather appropriately, as the Phoenix Cinema. It was gutted by fire on 19th December 1961 and the remains of the building had been demolished by June 2007.

Picture House was gutted by fire 19 December 1961, owned at the time by Mr N Donaghy. Obviously a lot of fires about!
