Previous Names: Drill Hall, Eberley Olympic Theatre, Electric Picture Palace
Located in Bridgend Town Centre. This began as a Drill Hall and at the turn of the century was operated as the Eberley Olympic Theatre & Skating Rink. In November 1910 it re-opened as the Electric Picture Palace with 800 seats. By 1914 it was re-named Palace Cinema.
The Palace Cinema was enlarged in around 1936 and the seating capacity increased to 850. In 1938 it was enlarged again, this time to accomodate 1,324 seats. Cinemascope was fitted in 1956 and the proscenium was 33 feet wide.
The Palace Cinema was closed by Bridgend Cinemas Ltd. in 1960, and was converted into a bingo club. By 1975, the bingo club had moved to newly built premises and the former Palace Cinema was shuttered. It was later demolished and the Tabernacle Church was built on the site.
