The White Cinema was established in Barmouth in silent days, opening in 1923. It had a corrugated tin roof and the proscenium was 18ft wide. In line with a number of venues in coastal holiday towns, it showed films continuously during the Summer but only once nightly during the Winter at prices that ranged from 9d to 1/6d. It converted to sound using a Gyratone Sound system. Its proscenium was 18ft in width. By 1951 it was showing films just one show per day with matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays at prices ranging from 1/– to 2/7d.
Because of the corrugated tin roof, I have been told of the sound being drowned out when it rained heavily. It closed in the late-1950’s and is currently "Buffs Club".
