Next time I’m in Barmouth or Abermaw to give it it’s Welsh name,I’ll try to take a better photo of the White. It’s only an hour’s train ride from Pwllheli, but it won’t be until the summer.
It,s probably obvious due to the size of the building but there was no balcony, I remember this vividly although I was only 11 at the time as I had never been to a single floor cinema before.

Glad to see that this cinema has been listed, I remember being in Barmouth as a kid on probably a Sunday school trip, and my sister took me to see “White Christmas” ( in the middle of summer"!!). A friend who used to work in the Barmouth area told me that the hand winch for the screen masking which changed the format for Cinemascope was in full view inside the auditorium, and one of the usherettes used to operate it, to loud applause ! The building now seems so small from the outside, it’s hard to beleive it used to be a cinema.
