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.

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.

I’ve uploaded a photo taken April 2011 when on holiday from Wales, I thought the entrance may have been a bank in it’s former life until I read the intoductory post. We saw the film Arthur starring Russell Brand. Enjoyed our evening there, sorry the photo is a bit crooked.

I’ve never been this far north, but having surfed the net I’ve discovered it’s now open again with a new name, The Thurso Cinema.

Not sure about the roof though, it’s not slate, is it one of those that required the projectionist to turn up the volume during hailstones etc !!
