Question Help Please! Need some information on old Cork cinemas

Doing a bit of genealogical research and I need to find some information on a family member that was connected with one of the old cinemas in cork.

I have the names of a few of the old cinemas such as:

The Lee
The Capitol
The Pavillion
The Savoy

I know there are a few more but I can't seem to find many resources online.

Is there anyone who might have a few of the other names and locations of where the old picture houses/cinemas in cork used to be? City or otherwise?

Thanks!

The Ritz (later The Classic) on Washington Street where Long Island is now.
The Palace on McCurtain Street (Everyman).

The Classic was where that cocktail place is now on Washington Street.

Would the following book help? You should find it in any of the city libraries.

The Golden Age of Cork Cinemas By John McSweeney Rose Arch Publications: Cork, 2003
