Landore Cinema

The Landore Cinema was opened in the last week of November 1913, with John Lawson in "Humanity". It was built for the Merthyr Co. Ltd. and seating was provided for 600.

By 1930 it was operated by the Landore Cinema Co. and from 1937 Swansea Cinemas Ltd. were the operators, booking the cinema from the Regal Cinema, Morriston. In 1944 it is listed as ‘Closed for the duration’ (of the war), and seems never to have re-opened.

Today the building still stands, and can be see from the railway train, to the left, as it begins its approach towards Swansea Station. It is used as a car-parts retail store.

The former Landore Cinema is a Grade II Listed building.

Ken, i cant believe you just posted this building. I was standing by it today and didn’t have a camera. I’ll be back in Swansea in a few weeks and will take a few shots. Its a fab looking place and is in brilliant condition on the outside. I’ve been told that in the distant past it had the name of ‘The Majestic’ for a period of time!

The Boss Brewing Company plan on moving into the empty cinema creating a brewery and taproom bar at a cost of £250,000. May also show outdoor movies next summer, presumably in the car park. More info at:
