Amazing Vintage Photos of Dublin's Ambassador Cinema in the 1970s and 1980s

The Ambassador Cinema was Dublin's longest-running cinema and was operational on and off until 1999. It is now a music venue. These photos of the cinema from the 1970s and '80s display the artistic skills of Dublin signwriter Kevin Freeney (1919-1986). His first job for the venue was producing the sign for the 1978 Sean Connery film "The First Great Train Robbery," later he was assisted by his nephew who helped with the artwork in the backroom of the cinema.
