Theatre Royal, Hawkins Street, Dublin, 1958

Sale price$21.00


Pictured here is the 3rd reincarnation of the Theatre Royal, built on the same site as its predecessors, opened in 1935. The first Theatre Royal was opened in 1662. The theatre finally closed its doors on June 30th, 1962, probably as a result of the advent of television. It had a modern art deco design on the exterior, and a Middle Eastern interior. The stage was large enough to accommodate theatre and music productions as well as a cinema. It was reputed to be Dublin’s biggest theatre. Many stars from overseas trod her boards included Gracie Fields, George Formby, Max Wall, Max Miller and Jimmy Durante. Also, our own well loved artists such as Jimmy O'Dea, Harry O'Donovan, Maureen Potter, Danny Cummins, Alice Dalgarno, Noel Purcell, Micheál Mac Liammoir, Cecil Sheridan, Jack Cruise were featured regularly. Sadly missed by the old Dubs...

We are delighted to present these fascinating rarities of old Ireland for you to own. We look forward to helping you create your own collection that can be treasured and admired by your family for many generations to come!
