Located in Mountmellick, County Laois. The Electric Cinema Company was formed by members of the Catholic Young Mens’ Society in 1918 and screened films in the Owenass Hall, a dance-hall with a capacity for 350 people. It was managed by a Carlow schoolteacher E.J. Breen. The cinema continued to run until the late-1940’s and was extremely popular, but concerns were being raised over safety and it was recommended that the doors be left open during performances. This ended up in the closure of the cinema and the erection of a brand new building across the street which see.
