This was a small local cinema that was housed in a former 1840’s era warehouse, that went out of use when Clonakilty Quayside was filled in. The old warehouse was stone built, possessing a slate roof with very poor acoustics. The Cinema was opened on 29th October 1933. It had 26ft wide proscenium, the stage was 15ft deep and there were two dressing rooms. It was equipped with a GEC sound system. Prior to about 2000 did a reasonable trade on the basis that it was the only cinema in the district.

It closed circa 2000 when a new multiplex was opened at the Quality Hotel site on the Western Road side of the town.

The Cinema has since been demolished with the site being incorporated into a new hotel.

This is assumed to be the one opened by Ted Lowney on 29 October 1933 with ‘Two Against the World’ although there are indications there was a cinema in the town by January 1931.
