As this cinema has been closed for decades, it should not appear as open.There is nothing of the former cinema to be seen within the HMV shop.

The Streetview showing is located on the wrong side of the river, miles from the correct location in Smithfield. I cannot get it to correct.

No change in status nor any progress with the grand “redevelopment” scheme for O'Connell St, – the ride experience in a part of the Carlton complex continues to operate.

“XD Theatre, the current occupant of the Carlton”

The XD Theatre, which provides a theme park style ride experience, only uses a tiny part of the former Carlton premises, not clear what the rest of the space is used for – probably nothing.

“The October 13, 1915, issue of Building News and Engineering Journal had an item which might have been about the original Carlton Theatre”

Yes, this is indeed the original Carlton which closed in 1936. The architect was T F Mc Namara.

An interesting article with several photos concerning the Park Theatre.

This building is now advertised for sale, 3 million is the asking price.

Should refer to Sint Joost ten Noode district of Brussels, not ten Norde as in the text.

irishcine commented about Phoenix Picture House on Dec 26, 2011 at 11:44 am

The Google Map location is wrong. The cinema was on the North Bank of the River Liffey, not as is apparently shown on the South. However the streetview does show a North Bank location, and it is somewhat closer to the correct location!

irishcine commented about State Theatre on Dec 26, 2011 at 11:35 am

The Google map reference for this cinema is spectacularly wrong, showing a location on the opposite side of Dublin, many miles from the poor old State.

The building remains in Phibsboro.

irishcine commented about Rialto Cinema on Nov 29, 2011 at 1:16 am

The Google location link here is wrong, showing a location on Thomas St, rather than the S.C.R.

irishcine commented about Cathay Cineplex Cinemas on Nov 29, 2011 at 1:04 am

Visitors to Singapore may enjoy a visit to the Cathay Organisations Gallery, located on the first floor of the shopping mall just behind the Cathay facade. A very extensive company collection is displayed, including records of former cinemas operated by Cathay in the region – they once had 45, photos, film memorabilia, cinema and home projectors and still cameras. Strictly no photography here however.

No signs of any activity here on a recent visit, still closed as are associated business premises.

No change, empty and for sale.

Update from November 2011. Closed since 1994, the ambitious redevelopment plans have come to nothing and in the present climate see unlikely to do so in present economic circumstances. Some of the cinema is used for for a “cinema seat” based theme park style ride experience.

irishcine commented about Paramount Theatre on Oct 11, 2011 at 1:42 am

Although it looks very like a purpose built cinema from the outside, the Paramount was indeed built as a ballroom initially.

Still empty.

irishcine commented about Metropolitan Theater on May 7, 2011 at 5:04 am

Recent interior photos suggest that many original features remain, or have been restored to near original condition. There seem to be no seating fitted, nor any use of the premises at the moment.

irishcine commented about Film Row in Memphis on Apr 11, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Abbey Street in Dublin was the home of the film renters in the golden era, just off the main street O'Connell Street, it was very convenient for downtown cinemas. Of course, at that time there was little traffic or parking problems in that area.

irishcine commented about Ormonde Cinema on Apr 3, 2011 at 12:52 am

This former cinema location should be listed as Midleton, not under Mildenton!

I suspect that the former Star and Southern Star cinema was at the other end of the town, not the the Ormonde location.

A poster on the cinema asks for expressions of interest in the former cinema. Downtown Youghal has many empty premises, and the small department store there recently closed.
