Irish cinema named one of the 50 most beautiful cinemas in the world
Just when we thought we couldn't miss the cinema any more than we already do...
While we all wait for the cinemas to safely reopen so we can check out the biggest and loudest movies on the biggest and loudest screens, Time Out Magazine has put together a list of what it considers to be the 50 most beautiful cinemas in the world, and an Irish cinema has cracked the top 20!
Stella Cinema, based in Rathmines in Dublin, landed at No.16 on the list, and this what the magazine had to say about the cinema:
"A beloved fleapit that closed in 2004, seemingly forever, the Stella sprung back into life in 2017 with a Gatsby-esque tszuj that restored it to its old 1920s grandeur. Mosaic tiling, art deco railings, hand painted ceiling, chandelier and the dress-to-impress The Stella Cocktail Club (a Star Wars t-shirt will do at a push) pushes the Scott Fitzgerald vibe into the realms of French martinis and bourbon cocktails. Oh, and the screen itself isn’t shabby either, with red armchairs, huge sofas and double beds to pick from. The Stellar used to Ireland’s largest cinema, now it’s just the swishest."
