Further to the news that the Bernard Shaw in Dublin 2 is closing

Marie Clare Digby, in The Irish Times, reports:

Trevor O’Shea’s Bodytonic hospitality and entertainment group has taken over the Porterhouse Whitworth, at Cross Guns Bridge, and when the Bernard Shaw closes at the end of October, as much of its footprint as possible, including the Eatyard food truck space, is transferring to the new venue. Even the name may be re-used.

The Drumcondra Grand Cinema – known as ‘The Drummer’- was the first cinema in Ireland to be specifically designed for sound films.

Now a Tesco Metro.

That’s showbiz.
