Old films shown for Pwllheli cinema centenary


A Gwynedd arts centre is marking 100 years as a cinema with a celebration of the golden age of local film-making.

Neuadd Dwyfor in Pwllheli first opened its doors to show silent movies in 1911.

After an extensive refurbishment the 354-seat theatre will screen historic films from the National Screen and Sound Archive in Aberystwyth.

The Welsh language film Y Cymro will be one of those shown.
