This short lived cinema was opened just prior to World War I, in the Elysium Grove, a wooded and garden area at the bottom of Penglais Hill. It held various entertainments both in the open air and in a large wooden building.

It converted to film in the early-1920’s but was closed by 1926, due, it is said to the popularity of Aberystywyth’s other cinemas. In all probability it was probably licensing problems due to the wooden nature of the venue.
