Previous Names: MGM, Virgin, UGC
The 10-screen MGM opened on 15th July 1993. It is located in Belfast city centre. Taken over by Virgin on 4th July 1996, by February 2000 it was operated by UGC. In December 2003 it was taken over by local independent operator Movie House chain.
Seating capacities in the screens range from 436, down to 118. In February 2019 the building was acquired by a software company Kainos and it was planned that the cinema would close by the end of May 2019. This was deferred, initially to August, then through autumn & winter, until in February 2020, a ‘final’ date of Saturday 26th April 2020 was announced.
However this was pre-empted in mid-March, when Movie House, as with all other places of entertainment, was closed on government instruction, to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. On 17th March 2020, managing director Michael McAdam formally announced that the Movie House Dublin Road would not be re-opening once the national lockdown was lifted. It was demolished in May 2021.
