Sfx hall

The meaning of «sfx hall»

SFX Hall, sometimes referred to as SFX Theatre or The SFX, was a theatre located on Upper Sherrard Street, in Dublin, Ireland. The venue was named after the St Francis Xavier Hall and constructed in 1957, although a theater had been located on that site since the middle of the 19th century. The theatre served as the national concert hall, a home to the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra, and on occasion, large-scale performances.[1] The venue had a standing capacity of 1000[2] and hosted pop and rock music concerts until 2001 when the shows were moved to the Ambassador Theatre.[3] In 1982, the Irish band U2 performed three shows at the SFX in support of their album War.[2] At one time the Dublin Theater Festival was housed at the SFX.[4]

In 2006, SFX Theater was demolished to make way for 41 apartments.[1]
