THis private cinema was run by Gwyn Phillips who at some time had been projectionist at the local Lido Cinema on the West End Square in Gorseinon. This Lido cinema was run by Richards & Firth and was fitted with Kalee 20’s and scope in the early 1950s. The building was a skating rink before conversion. End as a Bingo Hall and in the last few years has be demolished and flats built on the site.
