The History of Genesis Cinema

This privately owned art house cinema, has a historic past opening originally in 1884 as a pub and then running as a music hall with the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy treading the boards.

The building has been used as a cinema since 1912 although was derelict for a decade until the current owner Tyrone restored it and re-opened it as Genesis.
