Oldest cinema in wales. Opened in 1894. A stunningly beautiful cinema. Small and friendly. If you are in the area go watch a film there. The nicest cinema I have ever visited.

Great local cinema. Renovated since I last visited, and the seats are more comfortable now. A bit pricey for a small cinema but I would rather pay extra and support our local cinema

The market hall cinema, so I'm told is the oldest cinema in Wales, currently run by a charitable trust is a cinema to visit and enjoy, large comfortable seats and a warm welcome, I'll certainly return here.
