The Omen is among the films being screened at Buncrana Cinema.

Buncrana Cinema (St. Mary’s Hall), built in 1904, is one of the oldest single-screen cinemas still running in Ireland.

Preserved Tickets show that the hall was used to screen movies by a travelling cinema group back as early as 1910.

Becoming a fully functioning stand-alone cinema in the early 1930s, Buncrana Cinema has provided generations of the Inishowen community with an opportunity to enjoy and explore the culture and art of film.

Recently refurbished with a state-of-the-art Digital Projector, the Inishowen Cinema Committee plan for Buncrana Cinema to continue providing entertainment and joy for the future generations to come.
