The special Time Capsule was later buried to commemorate the opening of the new Scala Cinema and Arts Centre in Prestatyn, the first independent all-digital film cinema in Wales.
Pupils from schools in the Prestatyn area placed items of interest to them in the time capsule, which was then buried in the grounds of the venue's courtyard. The schools involved were: Ysgol y Llys, Ysgol Penmorfa, Ysgol Melyd, Bodnant Infants and Juniors, Ysgol Clawdd Offa, Ysgol Tir Morfa and Prestatyn High School.
The time capsule was buried on Thursday, April 23 at 10.45am. Councillor Joan Butterfield, the Vice Chair of Denbighshire County Council, and Councillor Anne Horobin, Mayor of Prestatyn joined in the celebrations and a commemorative plaque was erected to mark the occasion.
Councillor Rhiannon Hughes, Chair of the Scala Trustees Board, said: "We are delighted that local schools are getting involved in this initiative and we look forward to seeing what kind of imaginative and interesting things they would like to see buried relating to modern life in 2009. We will also be including copies of local newspapers in the capsule.
Chris Bond, General Manager of the Scala, said: “This is the latest milestone in the development of the Scala and plans are being progressed to officially open the building in June.”
