I remember the Foyer like the first image from back in the 70s/80s.

If you consider the seating capacity was larger than the Grand Canal (with a smaller screen width than their stage), there's no way it would be sustainable, they had to break it up. Considering I've been in there (not recently) within a week of a movie opening & in screen one & it's less than a third full, I think we're lucky they've not broken it up further.

Does the other O'Connell Street have a cinema called The Savoy on it?

There's multiple other O'Connell Streets?

Were you ever in the old Coliseum cinema in Carlow?

This is the old Metropole building, also O' Connell Street. Ya know, the one with the old Metropole on it.....

This was taken in 1923. It was knocked and replaced with that crappy Penneys. It's amazing the difference O' Connell St has been through. In it's hey-day it was opulent and had a bit of class about it. Now it's the go-to place for heroin.

No, never was. Had a quick google of it there, it looks like it had a bit of charm!
