The Screen Cinema on D’Olier street closed on Monday, after more than 30 years in operation.

The cinema, known for showing international and cult films, will be sorely missed, as will the squat little statue out front which was uprooted a week before the cinema closed.

Mr.Screen, a statue of a cinema usher was created in 1988 by artist Vincent Browne (no, not #vinb, this guy).

Much loved by regulars at the Screen, his current whereabouts is unknown.

Hopefully he’s safe and sound, and will soon reappear to usher the cinema goers of Dublin once again.
