Sorry to be irritating, but Tonyrefail is in the Ely Valley, not the Rhondda. Good luck to the new owners of the Savoy.

Yes indeed… My partner and I have bought the Savoy Cinema/Bingo Hall. When we moved in, it was still fitted out with the bingo equipment. The interior of the building is in superb condition, but the exterior requires some work. In 2010, planning permission was granted to convert it into eight, two bedroom flats. We have now submitted a planning application for its conversion into a community theatre/performing arts centre, to include a one bedroom flat for us to live in. The auditorium will accommodate approximately 220, with a proscenium stage of 14.2 metres by 8.5 metres. A 40 channel sound system of around 3kw and a 256 channel lighting system with intelligent lighting. In the meantime, we have been given permission to strip out the bingo equipment and certain walls in preparation for the conversion work to start. Work is now well under way, and we hope to open by the end of August. Our website is:

This building has been purchased (August 2012) by the people who were running a theatre in Southend -but lost the lease, the theater in Southend on Sea was converted from a cinema. They plan to convert the savoy into a theatre.
