About
Get set for a truly unique cinema experience in the beautifully restored Stella Theatre, an iconic cinematic landmark which sits in heart of Dublin 6. The cinema itself has been sympathetically restored to reflect the glamour and glitz of the 1920’s for an entire new generation of movie-goers.

This is my third time and each time I've thought I'll give it another try before I leave a review.
The place is stunning, the staff are awesome, it's unbelievably comfortable but my God the sound is shocking!

Guys, please turn the bass down and give it some top end. For the third time I literally couldn't hear what the actors were saying.
It looks like they spent a fortune on sound but they just love the bass and hate everything else.

I hate to leave a negative review for a venue that's a good obviously put so much work in but they really need to sort it out.

I'd love to go back but until I see that this has been sorted, I won't be back. If it's fixed, it would be a regular visit because everything else is great

Terrible sound stunning venue
Sep 2020
I hate having to leave a bad review because I think the Stella is a fantastic idea and the decor and cocktail bar is really stunning. We had been looking forward to getting to the cinema after lock down and treating ourselves to a nice night. Alcoholic drinks could only be brought in with a substantial meal which is a shame because part of the novelty is sitting with the drinks on your personal side table (didn't fancy a burger in a dark cinema). I asked if they had non alcoholic cocktails (just to keep the ambiance) and they don't, just beer. Then we settled in for the film which it turns out was really difficult to hear. Our seats were on a sofa right at the back on the lower level. Tenet really wasn't the best film to try see with very muffled sound. Dialogue was incomprehensible. The place itself is stunning and the staff were polite and helpful given unusual circumstances but we left having to piece together the movie from snips of dialogue.

Awful Sound
Sep 2020 • Friends
Awful, awful sound.
Probably missed over half the dialogue. Will have to go see Tenet again in a proper cinema.
Food menu is very unclear. Thought I was ordering Beef Taco special deal but was charged for individual items. Most of the tacos were broken crumbs.
Over priced, looks the part, fails to deliver - but is anyone surprised from Press Up?

Such a great experience! A must visit. The food was to die for the nicest tacos I've ever had, but I'm so disappointed to see that the menu has been reduced and tacos gone 😭 also not sure if they still doing table service too which would totally take away from the experience.

Charming
Sep 2019 • Couples
Great spot to treat yourself, we watched the lion king and the venue really made the evening special. A little more expensive than a standard cinema but not a standard cinema experience! Would recommend arm chairs ( come with a blanket and poof ) the sofas and beds look less appealing. Good food and drink too

A real Gem
Feb 2020
This Cinema is a real Gem, beautifully decorated in an art-deco style, clean, comfortable, good staff, there is a Cocktail bar on the 1st floor which is worth a visit on its own. Seeing a movie here is a great experience - Highly recommended.

Return visit
Jan 2020 • Couples
Nice evening out at a 6.30 showing of little women
We booked a two seat sofa with the clothes box for stowing our gear, doubling as a foot rest.
The cinema is comfortable and having a few beers during the show is nice.
There is a lot of queuing in the Stella, for drinks, for food ( these queues are mixed together and a bit unnecessarily slow) , long queue for the ladies.
The sound quality in the cinema isn't great and it was overheated.
I like it and enjoyed the evening, my wife isn't convinced
I even enjoyed Little Women!

Loved it - very comfortable
Jan 2020 • Friends
This cinema is amazing. I went to see Little Women with 2 friends. It was such a novelty to be able to order hot food / dessert. Our only mistake was driving!! We will go the next time and share a bottle of wine. Loved the experience and the armchairs are so comfortable.
