Coliseum Cinema - Brecon (Official)
Functions: Movies (First Run)
Styles: Art Deco
Previous Names: New Coliseum Cinema, Coliseum Film Centre
The Coliseum Cinema opened in 1925, with a seating capacity of 650. It had a 29 feet wide proscenium, a 25 feet deep stage and three dressing rooms. With the installation of ‘talkies’ in 1929, it was re-named New Coliseum Cinema.
By 1951, seating capacity had been reduced to 565. CinemaScope was installed in the mid-1950’s and the proscenium was widened to 32 feet to acommodate the wider screen.
The Coliseum Cinema was converted into a triple-screen cinema, which re-opened on 25th May 1980. Seating was now provided for 164, 80 and 51, and it was re-named Coliseum Film Centre.
In 1986, it was converted into a twin-screen with 164 seats in each screen and it reverted back to the name Coliseum Cinema. In 2009, the seating capacities are 120 and 188 and it continues as a first run cinema.
