Theatr Gwaun is a theatre that is located in Fishguard, North Pembrokeshire, Wales. It was built in 1885 and used as a Temperance Hall, but was converted to a cinema in the 1920’s. This actually makes it one of the oldest cinemas in the country. There is only one cinema screen and just 180 seats, but they are still able to host professional theatre performances, live music shows, while the surround sound Dolby system and 4K resolution is a match for anywhere else in Wales.
How Much Are the Tickets?
Ticket prices are very similar to any other cinema that you will visit across the United Kingdom. Adults will be charged £6.50 while children will be charged £4.50. However, if you come as a family of four (two adults and two children), you will get a reduced price of £5.00 per person.
If a birthday of someone you care about is around the corner, you can also treat them to a £5, £10, or £15 voucher so that they can go and go and enjoy a showing at this quaint cinema.
Furthermore, it takes quite a bit of money to keep this old building in a tip-top condition, so they always welcome donations so that the building can remain open and be enjoyed for many years to come. Therefore, if you ever go to watch a showing here and enjoy your experience, please feel free to make a small donation on your way out. Every little helps after all.
We Recommend You Watch the "It's 4 U" Documentary"
If you live close by and are a huge cricket fan, then we recommend that you head on over to the Theatr Gwaun and watch the “It’s 4 U” documentary.
This is about the legendary Sir Ian Botham, who is one of the best cricketers that England have ever produced. As an all-rounder, he scored more than 7,000 runs for his country and picked up over 400 wickets. In test cricket he averaged 33.54 with the bat and 28.40 with the ball. In ODI cricket, his batting average is quite low (23.21) because he batted down the order, but his bowling average is 28.54.
The documentary follows his rise in the game and highlights some of his greatest performances in an England shirt. This includes his 8 wickets for 34 runs against Pakistan in 1978 that helped England win by an innings and 120 runs and his 149* and 6⁄95 against Australia in 1981 that saw England win by a mere 18 runs.
David Lloyd, also known as Bumble, is the presenter and interviews Botham as well as some of his teammates in order to get an insight into what it was like to play alongside him.
The documentary is called “It’s 4 U” as Botham was such a natural cricketer that it seemed like the game was made specifically for him to play it.
