A Welsh community attempting to save their local cinema from permanent closure have set up a new group to stop its demise.

The Coliseum cinema in Porthmadog has seen its attendance figures dwindle, and the 80 year old building, which opened in 1931, is beginning to show its age. It has consequently been shut temporarily, while its long term future is in doubt.

The Save the Coliseum group is now working with businesses and individuals in the community to try to preserve the cinema.
