Description

In a similar style to Mitchell and Kenyon's 'factory gate' films, church congregations were filmed to draw crowds to the cinematograph shows. This film captures Cork's then affluent middle classes leaving mass in a fine array of hats - essential attire for church at the time. St Patrick's Church, on the Lower Glanmire Road, was designed by architect George Richard Pain and built in 1836.

Mitchell & Kenyon do what they do

Again one of Mitchell & Kenyons "leaving church" videos in order to attract the people to see themselves on the screen. Here the camera is located quite far from the people so they are not as easily identified, but you get a better view of the whole entrance area of the church and in this way more people in the shot and more things happening in the short clip.
