Theatre 2, seating 100 is used for film presentation twice a month, on every 2nd Wednesday. The original Hall is a permanent theatre, seating 500 now. A large investment over the past decade has resulted in a first class regional arts centre.

The Abbey opened on 17 November 1946 designed as a theatre and cinema. Previews were held for specially invited guests the day before when “Saratoga Trunk” was shown. It must have closed for films at some point in the 1960s as it was opened again on 30 November 1969 by a Mr O'Connell, probably as a result of the Erne having been damaged by fire.
