The demolition of the Screen Cinema has begun and with it the memories of countless Dublin moviegoers from years gone by. 

The Hawkins Street theatre closed down in 2016 after being in operation since 1984 and this picture of its sad demise was captured by Overheard In Dublin yesterday. 

The building is now expected to be turned into a mixed-use venue consisting of offices, a music venue, a cafe, bar and restaurant. An image of what the new complex is expected to look like can be seen below.
