Previous Names: Odeon Capital Centre Cardiff
The Odeon Capital Centre was born out the site of the redevoloped famous Capitol Theatre in Cardiff’s Queen Street (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The site where the old Capitol Theatre stood had been transformed into the Capitol Shopping Centre, and the five screen Odeon Capital Centre Cinema.
The Odeon Capital Centre was opened by Odeon Cinemas on August 22nd 1991 with 5-screens offering a total seating capacity 1,266 seats, all cinemas being fitted with the latest technology and Dolby stereo. Capacities in the screens were; 435, 261, 223, 186 and 161. At this time Odeon Cinemas also had in operation the twin screen Odeon in Queen street just a block or so away from the newly opened Odeon Capital Centre, but this was to close shortly after.
Within ten years and competition from newly opened multiplex cinemas, UCI, UCG, and Ster Century cinemas, all in close proximity to the Odeon Capital Centre, the cinema was closed on 21st August 2001, ending its short life of only ten years, and a history of cinema on that site since 1921. It remained empty for just over 13 years.
It was announced in September 2014 that the cinema was going to be refurbished, with a planned reopening for December 2014. It re-opened as the Premiere Cinemas on 17th April 2015. It was closed suddenly on 17th October 2022.
