Romilly Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of several cinemas in Barry, the Romilly Hall was built as a market.
"Sidney Bacon’s Animated Pictures" were presented there around Christmas 1909.

Always operated as an independent cinema, it later became a bingo hall in the 1960’s and this continued into the 1980’s.

The building still exists today as a bar in the J.D. Wetherspoon chain of pubs which opened on 13th March 2009. It is now known as The Sir Samuel Rommily.

Part of the balcony front has been incorporated into the new pub, otherwise not much to show what was there before.
