This was one of Dublin’s greatest lost treasures, it makes me sad every time I pass the site. My father took me there to see Mary Poppins in the 1960’s, I still remember being in awe of the stunning interior, it was magnificent.

My uncle was the projectionist there in the 1970’s. The site was actually slightly further up to the south of the block than the Planet Hollywood/TGI Fridays site, I think it forms part of either the former Bank of Scotland building or the Fitzwilliam Hotel, perhaps partly both.

Was the Grafton Cinema not further up on the opposite side of the street, just before the junction with Chatham Row? I passed it recently and it is being redeveloped as a high end retail store.
