Memorial Theatre

Louden’s Picture Palace opened on 23rd September 1922. Name changed to Swansea Picture Palace in the (1920’s or 1930’s?). Renamed to Memorial Theatre in(1964?). The Memorial Theatre showed the Moon landing live, in recognition of the contribution of the NASA station in Carnarvon to that historic event. The Memorial Theatre closed on 3rd April 1973 with “The Last Picture Show”. The Memorial Theatre was demolished(date unknown?), except for the concrete wall of the bio-box with portholes and flume, still visible upstairs and incorporated within the new structure with shops on the street frontage, and offices and a new RSL(Returned and Services League) clubrooms upstairs.
