Was due to be auctioned off on 5.11.15 but according to reports appeared to be unsold as of April 2016. Maybe the hefty €1.75 million price tag has put developers off! Pictures of how it looks inside these days are at:

Hi what would be the chance of getting a list of all movies played at the Stella in a certain year – is there a historian place I could go to in Dublin for that?

Very interesting movie on the Irish times website today about the inside of the cinema and how it is fairing 12 years after closing down. The interior ( original 1923 ceiling is phenomenal – Please please please dont let this be demolished – the original interior decor of the cinema is intact and is wonderful

According to media reports, some locals are objecting to plans to build a four story block in place of the Stella Cinema. They claim that they need measures to deal with alleged asbestos in the roof structure of the former cinema during any demolition exercise.The replacement building would provide apartments upstairs.

Still closed, more dust but no signs of activity of any sort. A no trespassing sign in the porch.

That’s too bad. It looks like it was a nice little neighborhood theater.

Planning permission has been applied for to demolish the Stella, and replace it with apartments and some retail units. I intend to contact the developers in order to possibly photograph the interiors before this happens.

Passed it again last week, it remains closed with no signs of development.
