This cinema ‘complex’ was converted from St. Paul’s Church in Swansea city centre. The main screen was in the main part of the church, the second around the back. Best of all was screen 3…. in the former crypt underneath the building!
I remember seeing a double bill of “The Exorcist” and “Friday the 13th” in the crypt screen with a friend of mine and then on leaving had to walk through what was part of the old graveyard. We walked at a brisk pace! One of the screens (I think screen 2?) used telescopic projection which I think was a first for a cinema in Swansea. The cinema was run by a guy who did the whole set up as a hobby, I believe. The whole place just glowed D.I.Y. The Studios 1-2-3 was closed in August 1989. It became an Indian restaurant, which had closed by 2014.
