The Grand cinema was certainly in existence in1924 under the ownership of Mr James Williams and was twinned with the New Cinema, Neyland. Shows were initially on Thursdays only at 7.30pm at prices of 6d to 1/6d. By 1938 a Mr Dennis Rowlands had taken a lease on the premises and was showing films on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at the same prices. It is unknown what sound system was in use.

Narberth was the base of a man who ran a radio and electric shop and who produced a TV set long before they were available. He also built a sound system called Lewphone, the name of his business and shop, and this was fitted at the Tivoli Gowerton and the Capitol Cross Hands. I have not found any other installations and both these were converted to more well known sound systems soon after. This same man ran a cinema in a local WI or Scout Hut (?) Much more information is on display in the local Narberth Museum along with some of his products,
