Thanks for the picture Mike, I’ve never been inside the building but I did know of the overhanging projection box.I had wondered if it may have been the extension on the right (although it’s not in the centre) I had no idea of the length ot the auditorium and although the slate roof comes down the other end it has to be longer than that. I’d like to go inside, but Blaenau is not a town I often visit,because it’s not a place you have to go near when travelling from Pwllheli to other places. if you know what I mean,I’m sure it’s still unused.

I’ve adjusted the Google Street view to the garage where the Plaza once stood.

We had many a run in with the fire officers, if they happened to visit our place first of an evening the then chief would send me down to the other cinema in town that he was on the prowl ! I still like the idea of a fire escape from the box though, it’s not just a fire in the proj room that could get you, especially at our place, one would have to use the same stairs as the audience.

Thanks Mike, must have been nice to know the fire escape was there, as where I worked The Town Hall Cinema in Pwllheli had none, and was almost twice as high. They did build one in the seventies but only down to a room underneath the flat roof, so you’re still inside the building.

As I was in Litchfield today for the first time ever, I thought I’d take a photo of what now stands on the old Adelphi site.

I was in Litchfield on my first ever visit today,I’ve uploaded a couple of photos.I was surprised to see that the steps up to the box has no barrier,rather tempting & hazardous for children I would have thought. I wonder if this was the only entrance to the projection suite or just a fire escape.

John Hughes (John Palladium) Chief Projectionist, either going or returning after been out on his boat sea fishing. Picture taken early 1950’s at the cinema’s car park.

Eric Evans commented about Prince of Wales Theatre on Oct 31, 2012 at 5:18 am

I’ve uploaded a couple of pictures of this theatre, I was very keen to go inside as I once visited it when it was still a cinema. It was in 1962, my pal & I saw “Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea” I think it was then a second run picturehouse. I think the film starred Walter Pidgeon & Peter Lorre, then ageing stars.

Had to rush a bit in photographing the pictures I’ve just uploaded, our coach driver was only able to give me a couple of minutes,hence why I was unable to go round the side to catch the main entrance. I did'nt even notice that car.

Thanks CSWalczac, I have an exterior photo somewhere of the building when it was an Odeon, if I find it or the negative I’ll post it here, I also have some of the interior.

The above address is incorrect, Lon Dywod (Sand Street) is in the town of Pwllheli itself, Butlins was in the village of Penychain about 4 miles out of town.
