The cinema did indeed close on 30 June 2013 but for digitisation. It relaunched on 23 November that year with free screenings of Casablanca, Monsters University and Mamma Mia.

The Centre comprises a three-screen cinema and the 360-seat Simon Ryan Theatre opened on 5 May 2001 by the then Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. It also offers dance classes, workshops, an art gallery, cafe, conference facilities and a family research unit. Wow! The cinema was due to close in June 2013 owing to the economic climate, and again in February 2017 with the rest of the building so that the new library could move in, but it appears to be still open as of May 2017.
