Designed by the architect R.H Dowling, the Stella Cinema was built for the O'Grady family (who also owned the Stella Cinema in Rathmines). It opened on 28th July 1955, showing the circus drama "Ring of Fire". The cinema closed on 29th October 1976, but continues to the present day as Flanagan’s furniture shop. Many of the original features are still intact, such as the ticket office.

While many of the original attributes of the cinema do indeed survive, adaptation for shop use included inserting new intermediate floors and side doors. At least one of the original cinema toilet facilities has also survived, in what seems like original condition.
