La Charrette started out as a tiny, 23-seat venue, sited in a back garden in the town of Gorseinon, near Swansea. ‘La Charrette’ (French for ‘the carriage’) was built from a disused railway carriage by the late Gwyn Phillips, who fell in love with the silver screen while working in local cinemas as a teenager.
The British Film Institute has recognised La Charrette as the smallest cinema in Wales.
In 2008 BBC2’s Culture Show hosted a special premiere screening at La Charrette of the previously unseen Danny Boyle film Alien Love Triangle (2002), starring Kenneth Branagh, Courteney Cox and Heather Graham. For the screening, Branagh made a personal appearance, while Cox and Graham recorded special messages.
La Charrette Cinema is now available to hire for birthday parties, private and corporate events. Why not host your own red carpet showing or Oscar themed showing.
