The experience is over rated except for kids. You are basically watching Tv on a big screen. Add in idiots on phones,talking and somebody eating a burger king behind you and I'm happy at home watching film on a 43 inch Tv.
Even if some close - some will re-open when everything settles down. We will always have Cinema - might even go to see Bond when it comes out.

Rubbish, nothing beats watching it on the big screen. Nothing.

Why are Dublin cinemas closed at the moment? The current restrictions allow for "Museums, galleries and other cultural attractions" to remain open provided the usual precautions are taken. Do cinemas not fall into this category?

Very sad news for Dublin City which is being hollowed out by Covid and governments knee jerk response to it. Obviously awful news for staff too. Been going there since it was Virgin cinema, which was a big step up from the outdated cinemas on offer in the city at the time like the Savoy on OCS or Screen on D'Olier Street etc.

I guess the risk is they don't know when next year.
They won't be the last group / independent to close and wouldn't be surprised if a few never re-open.
Hopefully a few stay open and make a decent attempt at second screenings that goes beyond LOTR, Harry Potter and Batman. With some good thinking, cinemas could have a decent program.
Restrictions permitting, I'd happily go see see previously realised films (especially ones I missed the first time). Charge a €5 to get people in and then make money on food / drink.

I'd agree with that. I'd happily pay €5 to something like "Sorcerer" or "Apocalypse now" on the big screen. Lots of potential for cinemas to screen movies a lot of people never got to see first time round.

was there another cinema on Abbey St beside The Adelphi, possibly called The Lighthouse?
