The Stella Theatre in Rathmines, Dublin 6, opened last month to fanfare and excitement, giving movie lovers the chance to take in the latest blockbusters in the swish surrounds of an old school movie theatre.
The whole concept behind the theatre is to bring the glitz of the 1920’s for an new generation of movie-goers, and this Saturday, November 18th, the glamour is set to go up a notch with the theatre hosting a Great Gatsby evening.
For one glorious evening, the theatre is taking you back to the 1920s. Stop by for cocktails in The Stella Cocktail Club, followed by a screening of the recent remake of The Great Gatsby, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio.

While a glamourous dresscode is optional the theatre is encouraging all attendees to don their finest glad rags for the occasions.
Originally opening its doors in 1923, the theatre was affectionately named The Stella. It held 1,283 patrons, making it Ireland’s largest cinema at the time.
During the current restoration, some beautiful original 1920s features such as the façade were uncovered, along with a typical art deco handrail which guides you up to the first-floor balcony, detailed mosaic tiling of the original Stella logo and original ceiling mouldings, which can be seen kindly restored and dotted throughout the theatre.
The Stella Theatre will be open for business seven days a week and will screen the newest movies. Every Friday and Saturday they’ll play host to the night owls of Dublin with a special midnight screening. They’ll also ensure young families are well entertained with a Family Film Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10.00am.
