Castle Cinema

Located in Dungannon, County Tyrone. My photograph, taken in September 2008, is believed to be of the building in Market Square that housed the former Castle Cinema. It was opened prior to 1934 and had 500 seats. It was still open in 1966, but had closed by 1980. Today the foyer is used by Boots the chemists store.

I think The Astor was always in Georges Street – it opened in the late 1930s there’s a picture of it (which looks like it comes from shortly after it closed in the early 80s?) here

The site of the Astor is now a Chinese restaurant – though it was a cinema again briefly in the mid/late 90s

This picture might have been the site of the Castle Cinema – before my time – The Square/Market Square are synonyms.

The Castle was badly damaged by fire on 18 November 1971 and was probably demolished. One source says it belonged to a Mr Hobson and waslater run by Supreme Cinemas.

The postcard view confirms the entrance to the Castle was the white frontage to the left of the Boots store.
