|Located on Dame Street in Dublin city, the Olympia Theatre is one of the last remaining Victorian-era music hall theater buildings in Ireland. The building dates from 1897 when it was called The Empire Theatre of Varieties. It replaced an earlier music hall -The Star of Erin- founded in 1879 by Dan Lowry. The 19th century Victorian canopy which had been restored during the 1980's was demolished in November 2004 when an articulated truck accidently reversed into it. In 2007 canopy was restored folowing renovation work in Scotland.|
