    History

    A very impressive high fronted building at the top end of Swansea High Street just seconds away from the main line station. The Elysium Cinema opened on 11th April 1914 as a 900 seat single screen Cinema in a building which was partly used as the Dock Workers Hall.

    It was designed by the architectural firm Ward & Ward of the Strand, London. It closed as a cinema in 1960 and went over to use as a bingo hall, which had closed by 1994.

    Yes looks good. Just read speeds report from 2010. Looks like it ain't changed much. Pity rigsby's report from 08 has failed to keep up the payments to  imageshack. Would of been nice to compare.

    Beautiful photos there.

    You should have gone through the little hatch into the working men's institute, just as much to see in there...
