The hall was designed by Richard Rolt Brash and was opened by the Earl of Bandon in April 1861 as the Protestant Hall. It is recognised distinctively by its ornately decorated double-arched façade. The first moving pictures in Cork were first shown here in 1896 but it did not become a full-time cinema until 1911. It was managed in the 1920’s by Miss Spencer but later by Reid and Goodwin and then Assembly Rooms Cinema Ltd. It closed as a cinema on 19th December 1964 after which the Capuchin Order bought the hall. The building is now home to Cork City Adult Guidance Service and the Threshold National Housing Service.
