Always a real treat to go to the cinema in Buncrana. This is an old fashioned style cinema with a balconey and stalls. Make it feel like a real night out. The cinema is quaint and comfortable. The prices are very reasonable.

The building looked like an old church hall and was a bit run down on the outside. We were looking to watch a move and ended up travelling to Derry.

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...More
