It certainly wasn’t screened with any extras this afternoon, 2nd Jan 2013. Very, very disappointing presentation. ….and the movie itself wasn’t up to much either!!! Flagship cinemas should give an audience an experience, this afternoon I could have been in any shopping mall multiplex, from ticket kiosk all the way through to the screening!
Here is a website i have opened up to start a campaign going to get the glorious Albert Hall reopen again.
Any feedback would be appreciated and used.
I need as much info as possible.
The Albert Hall projection box was converted into the staff room for the bingo staff.
The Albert Hall is a listed building, since 1987.
I recently bluffed my way to the rear of the stalls of the Castle, now Lazerzone.
There is nothing left of the auditorium. Every single thing has been removed and the whole auditorium is a 3 level theme park.
The main foyer entrance has all been destroyed together with the old box office. The two staircases to the circle area that were either side of the box office are gone too.
I thought this was a listed building!!!
I read somewhere that the owners were in trouble with the local council for the removal of the box office.
My fight to bring the Albert Hall back o the people of Swansea has begun.
Any help anyone can offer in the long trek ahead will be very welcome.
Lots of renovation work going on here!
What happened to the multiplex they were going to build opposite the old Sheraton hotel, a few blocks down from the Warner????
Any pics anyone can post here????
The Plaza Swansea had a magnificent organ.
The building looks very ‘complete’, what is left inside. The foyer areas still very much resemble the foyers areas of a once great theatre.
What was a ‘curtain 'walker’ ?
Great photo on that article.
Well done Seattle.
It certainly knew how to present a film.
Just this morning I saw ‘Toy Story 3’ here and it was a great presentation and the curtain presentation was near spot on.
To sit in a cinema balcony these days is a rare and fantastic experience!A brilliant place to see a movie.
Sorry, but these were some of the dirtiest theatres I’ve been to in years. If that show they were run Im not surprised people stopped going. Its exactly El Capitain
Amazing how owners can let their grand and glorious buildings go to that sad sorry state in the pics above.
Better days lie ahead for this gem.
I’ve visited this place around 15 or 20 times in the last 10 years or so and on only 2 occasions was there someone else in the theatre with me.
What an absolutely charming piece.
Thanks Jason. Such an in credible waste.
I absolutely adored this little cinema.
A really great place to see a movie with great presentation and always a well behaved audience.
I’ve always wondered why a building barely 11 years old closed so suddenly? Any ideas?
Was there tonight to see ‘A Single Man’.
First weekend of its release and just 5 at the midnight show.
The place really needs a good clean and refurbishment.
Yea, there was a small complex in the exact location described a few posts above. I cant remember the name of the company at the moment but it was a real dive of a place. Everything about it was second rate. I went there a good many times as well as the Odeon on the other side of the mall across the main road. Has that Odeon gone now? That was a horrible place too, down some steps into a dungeon- if its gone it cant be missed!
I was just gonna say that exact thing. Has anyone actually told them?
CWalczak, what a fabulous piece you linked there. Thank you so much.
I’ve been to these cinemas a number of times and the place is not always that busy. The place itself is OK and the auditoriums themselves are pretty big.
Very rude and idiotic staff sadly let the place down.
