By 1969 it was operated by John Finnegan & Bertie McSweeney and it was still open in August 1972, but was soon put up ‘For Sale’. New operators took over and it reopened in December 1974 with a reduced seating capacity of 260. A closing date is not known.

The building was believed to have been a conversion of a garage and was still screening films in August 1972 but there is no advertising after this.
