Eclipse Cinemas are a family owned business. There are three cinemas in the Eclipse chain - Bundoran, Lifford/Strabane and Downpatrick, with a total of 19 Screens. It was the ambition of the founders to bring City Style cinemas to smaller towns, with the extra attractions of a warm welcome and high quality customer service one associates with a family-run business. The Eclipse Cinemas brand was created by a Primary School pupil for a "Name your local Cinema" competition. The winning concept was, "When you go into a studio it is bright, then the lights go down and the film starts. At the end the lights go up again, just like during an Eclipse". The cinema carpets incorporate the "Eclipse" design which cinema goers find very attractive. The first Cinema to run under the Eclipse Name opened in 2008 in Lifford/Strabane which was formally called Lifford Strabane Cineplex, the former Bundoran Cineplex then became Eclipse Cinema Bundoran in 2009 along with the brand new Eclipse Cinemas Downpatrick. Eclipse Cinemas have won two awards recently. In 2011 it was the first cinema in Ireland to win the Trailblazer award for good practice in catering for people with disabilities and in 2012 it won the highly prestigious Investors in People award.
