The Coliseum closed it's doors in the Spring of 2011 due to falling attendances. With the permission of the Shareholders a new group 'The Friends of the Coliseum' was set up to find out if it could be reopened. The Friends have worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the closure and secure a grant to arrange for a feasibility study to be carried out.
Unfortunately the Shareholders have rejected the The Friends of the Coliseum's plan and the building is now for sale.
This is a sad day for Porthmadog and the surrounding area, it seems that the community spirit that saved the cinema back in 1983 wants it's money back!
