Manor Cinema

On 10 May 1920, the Manor Cinema opened on Manor Street, Dublin.

Managed by George Fagan, the silent films it offered had strong musical accompaniment from a small all-female orchestra that included two of Fagan’s sisters, Kitty and Lily, on cello and piano. The main opening film was Douglas Fairbanks’ He Comes Up Smiling.
