Cinema & Co

Located in West Glamorgan House. Cinema & Co is an independent cinema and art gallery/project space in Swansea city centre. It opened on Wednesday 21st October 2015 in premises previously used as an Army Recruitment Office.

The cinema’s name comes from the fact that it was created by three friends, led by Fred Tennant, who took a year out from his fine arts course at Central St. Martin in London to launch the cinema. They wanted to set up a cinema that shows films that usually don’t make it to the multiplexes. They also wanted to create a new social experience, where watching films provides an opportunity to meet fellow film fans. Classic films feature heavily in their programme, while they also provide a showcase for works by new filmmakers.

Patrons sit on unique two-seater sofas that the cinema founders designed and made themselves from shipping pallets and cushions. These are on wheels, so they can be moved to one side.

There is a bar selling food, wine and award-winning Welsh beers from local breweries.

The venue is available for hire for weddings and private parties.
