The Forum Cinema was operating prior to 1937. It was still open in 1966, but had closed by 1980, the last cinema to survive in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The Forum opened in 1938 with an R.C.A. sound system. Hoylake Entertainments Ltd were the first and only owners and the cinema seated 638 patrons originally. Early prices (in 1951 ) were 10d to 2/–. Programmes were once nightly with matinees on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Cinemascope was installed in 1955 when the number of seats was reduced to cater for the new lines of sight.
