1889 – Proposal for Post Office, Dublin
1972 – Screen Cinema, Townsend Street, Dublin
Architect: Sir Thomas Bennett / Henry J. Lyons & Partners
A soulless 1960s cinema that is partially on the site of two of Dublin’s most famous theatres: the massive Theatre Royal and the smaller Regal Theatre next door. Both were demolished to make way for the towering office blocks of Hawkins House and the An Post Building. The cinema was closed in 2016. Demolished early 2019.
