Planning permission has been granted for a new cinema on Dawson Street.

The two-screen theatre will be located on the lower ground floor beside the Ivy restaurant.

It's set to be the first Irish cinema operated by the UK-based Everyman group.

The chain - which has 28 cinemas across the UK - focuses on arthouse films and ‘event’ screenings (such as live opera and theatre broadcasts).

Their Dublin location will become the third arthouse cinema in the city, after the Irish Film Institute (IFI) and Light House Cinema.

The new location in Dublin will have a bar and dining area, as well as two small screens - one with 72 seats, and another with 51 seats.

Following their application earlier this year, the Green REIT property company has now been granted permission to proceed with the development by the City Council.

Planners had previously sought additional information about the acoustics of the new development, but the applicant is said to have "demonstrated how they would mitigate against background noise from the cinema".

Ultimately, planners decided: "Whilst the loss of the basement retail floor space is regrettable it would not merit refusal of the application in this instance when considered against planning policy."
