In 1987 the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation was set up to regenerate 2,700 acres of derelict docklands of Cardiff and Penarth – once the world’s largest coal exporting port – to create Europe’s largest waterfront development.

The Welsh Industrial and Maritime Museum was demolished to make way for the development. The collection was saved, but the majority remains in storage, with only a few items on display at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea.

Before the completion of the Cardiff Bay Barrage in 1999, the Bay was tidal, with extensive expanses of mud flats exposed at low tide. Construction of the barrage, one of the largest engineering projects in Europe, has turned Cardiff Bay into a 500-acre freshwater lake with 8 miles of waterfront.

Since then there has been vast regeneration of the Bay including the construction of Lloyd George Avenue – a new link road between the city centre and the Bay – numerous iconic buildings, and residential and commercial developments. Mermaid Quay, which was designed by architects Benoy, opened back in August 1999.

The Everyman cinema opened on Monday 23rd December 2019. It has the usual bar and lounge, with a menu featuring Spielburgers, hand rolled pizzas, sundaes and cocktails, and five screens, featuring the circuit’s signature comfy sofa seating.

Seating capacities are: Screen 1:67, Screen 2:48, Screen 3:52, Screen 4:56 and Screen 5:31. Screens 1 -3 and 5 have NEC 2k projection, while Screen 4 has Sony 4k. All have Dolby 7.1 digital sound, while Screen 5 is equipped for RealD 3D.
