When was the last time you went to Cwmbran Scene 123 cinema?

Yes, that sign does say £2.50 to watch a film in a cinema.

A story in the Daily Mail showed that a trip to the cinema in the North East costs a family of four an average of £17.60.

But here in Cwmbran Scene 123 you can do it for just £10. This is the cinema where I remember watching ET (1982) and BMX Riders (1983).

But I’ve got to confess the last time I bought a ticket here was for The Fugitive (1993).

When was the last time you watched a film here? Did you forget it is still open?




Here is the original trailer for ET.

Here is the original trailer for BMX Bandits.

  4. I had no idea it was still open!!! I remember my dad taking me there when I was a kid to watch something and sitting there thinking our tv at home was bigger.

    I’m really pleased it’s still there – now how is it that the likes of cineworld charge £7 a ticket and this little gem can charge £2.50 and survive??
