    Default The Light House Cinema Makes A Return

    The Light House cinema will make a return to Dublin after a 12 year gap on the 9th of May. This will increase the number of Art House cinemas in Dublin city to 2. This will be a fantastic addition to the capitals culture, it will be located in Smithfield, are people looking forward to its reopening and do you think that Dublin could do with more Art House cinemas or is there a market for them in such a commercial industry?
    By 2020, 12.75Lts of petrol will cost you just under €30, today it will cost you €16.42 exactly.

    Sadly its days look numbered due to 200 per cent rent increase. Saw some great movies there.
    Sign of the times I guess but very sad to see it go.

    Ah shite its one of the best cinemas in Dublin , saw some good movies. How can any landlord justify increasing rent by that much in wake of the current economic situation?

    The landlord must have a plan to push them out and replace them with something else.

    I thought they got a large state grant to build this cinema. Surely their lease can't be up for renewal already?

    In the current climate I can't think what else that space could be used for. There would be no demand for a pub/club.

    Indeed you are correct on that, all one has to do is to look at Thomas Reads

    They need the rent increase to justify the supposed value of the building, and by extension all the other buildings that are on loan books.

    It is loopy that a really good cinema (which is thriving) has to close to meet the demands of our property cult.

    They should get it revalued then!If the rent is increasing sureley this is not justifiable?

    apparently it was agreed that they'd have a rent of 100k for the first few years after re-opening...and then it would go to 200k at this time
