The Castle Cinema is located in the city centre of Swansea, right next door to the castle remains, and it opened around 1913. A very deep cinema with a small circle that didn’t overhang with maybe just five or six rows in it. The last two rows in the stalls had double ‘love seats’. Showed soft-core porn starting in the 1960’s and into the 1970’s when it was re-named Film Centre and then suddenly started getting major movies like “Grease”, “ET” and “Batman” on first run status.
It closed very suddenly around 1991 and became a Lazer Zone. It is under immediate threat of demolition. Very beautiful facade in its heyday though very run down now.
The building is Grade II Listed.
