The Galeri Cinema, Caenarfon


The new extension to the existing waterfront site building will provide two dedicated film theatres. The development will see Caernafon having the only full-time dedicated two screen cinema in Gwynedd & Anglesey.

The buildings were designed by Richard Murphy Architects and the constructed by R.L. Davies & Son Ltd.

The two cinemas each required class A absorbing fabric wrapped wall panels, together with angled ceiling baffles to fit into the pitched roof. Painted timber acoustic slatted wall and ceiling panels were also installed to the front, rear and ceiling of each theatre. Within the foyers, Oak Slatted ceiling rafts were installed with integrated ceiling lights and smoke detectors. The design required for the new timber ceiling rafts to match the existing rafts located within the original foyer.
