This blog post is about my experience while attending (how I say it), a fancy cinema, ‘The Stella Theatre’.
I didn’t attend the Stella Theatre with the intention of writing a blog post, however, since, I have been getting a lot of messages regarding my experience after visiting a few weeks ago, I thought I would share what I know so far. I had been familiar with some of the details of the unique cinema experience for a few months but being busy at work and home over the Christmas break, I didn’t get a chance to go. Also, I was aware that tickets needed to be booked in advance (well, for the popular times) and I didn’t know what I was doing from one day to the next.
Anyway, all of the above is pretty irrelevant to you guys and if you clicked on the link then you are probably just curious as to what it’s all about, so here we go.
The Stella Theatre is a cinema that has been restored to reflect the glamour and glitz of the 1920’s. The iconic building is located in Rathmines, Dublin 6 (around a 20 min walk from Coppers, for my Cork followers haha).

So now that you know it’s a cinema with a twist, what else?
Right so, from my experience (& especially West Cork), the cinemas I went to growing up were very basic. From popcorn to not so comfy seats & the occasional popcorn fight. Good but not so good or at least not ‘The Stella Theatre’ good.
At the Stella Theatre, attendees, not only have the same pleasant experience as a regular cinema but there is also the opportunity to sip on a cocktail, nibble on actual food and relax into a cosy cushioned covered couch. The food menu goes on forever and the drinks menu leaves you struggling to decide what it is you fancy.
I got a Mojito and chicken tenders with parmesan fries. Now I don’t know if it was the novelty included, but that was the best food I have had in a long time. The food was delivered about halfway through the movie, how class is that? I got my drink at the bar, where the typical cinema popcorn is also available.
Now one thing I didn’t do but is definitely a must for my next visit is to – reserve a seat in the cocktail bar a little before the movie begins. The Stella cocktail club is open from 5 pm every day.
So, have I captivated you yet?
Well, you’re still reading, so that’s a plus.
Right ok, so how do you book? It’s simple! Go to the website, choose a date/time and movie available that suits. There are different seating options, which I have not tried all – go with what works for you. Examples: Balcony seat, couch etc.
So, that is all I am going to say – as I think I have covered most of the essentials and I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Don’t forget to take lots of pics and share with me, so you can make me jelly! 😉
