Previous Names: Palace Cinema
Located in Seven Sisters, near Neath. The hall was built in 1914 by Evan Evans Bevan, a local coal mine proprietor. It was purchased by the local Miner’s Welfare association in 1926 and soon after was renamed the Palace Cinema.
The building consisted of a brick built auditorium with a rendered front and a small metal canopy over the entrance. It had a 20 feet wide proscenium and a 14 feet deep stage, with two dressing rooms. By 1937, it was known as the Welfare Hall Cinema
After Cinemascope was fitted in the 1950’s, the screen was 28 feet wide. The Welfare Hall Cinema was closed in the early-1970’s and by 1978 it had fallen into a state of disrepair. It was demolished in 2001.
In 2009, there are plans to build a new community hall on the site.
