Closed over 75 years ago, few recollections of this cinema are available. Remarkably the building has survived, though original features have gradually been lost during subsequent repair it is still recognisable as a former cinema, in use as a Woolworth store since 1932.
The plans and documents now available for research are revealing some of the history of this remarkable building, previously a mystery as hardly any of its programmes were advertised in the local press and it was thought, possibly incorrectly, that it was never equipped for sound.
The proximity of the huge Splott Cinema (with over 2,000 seats and modern facilities) and the fact that the city centre’s cinemas were only a short distance away, contributed to closure in 1931.
