“Nice traditional little cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This cinema is an ond fashioned single screen one, and it's brilliant! Always has been, and from my understanding its only going to keep getting better.
As well as being the local cinema, this is also where plays and pantos are staged, as well as the weekly bingo. It's a beautiful building, and with lots of things going on, I'm sure most people should be able to find a reason to visit, and I suggest that they do!

“Nostalgic and Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Taking a trip to Buncrana Cinema is like stepping back in time! As a child growing up in Buncrana the cinema does not seem to have changed a bit since I first went to see E.T. And a variety of other films about 30 years ago. While it is old, it is clean and in really good condition and it exudes charm and nostalgia. When I recently went to see a film there it brought back lovely and very happy childhood memories. This is a very special place to watch any recent release.

“Inishowen's Only Cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

This beautiful 109 year old cinema in Buncrana is Inishowen's only cinema, and is in danger of closing, unless crucial investment is secured. It's a community hall, cum cinema, and has held high profile events over the years, including the premier of the Amazing Grace film.

The community hall is on the ground floor, while the cinema is on the first, and the balcony on the next floor. It's a great amenity for Inishowen, and would be a shame if it closed.
