One source states that the Ritz was built on the site of Tynan’s Hotel and that the ballroom had been part of the hotel. The same source states it was the “Cinema” in Burrin Street that burned down on 26 December 1937. At the opening Diana Wynyard received bookends in Connemara marble for her appearance and the evening also included a dress parade by Brennan’s of Dublin. The opening night’s proceeds went to the Bishop Foley Memorial Schools. There was also a restaurant in the basement called The Buttery.
