Treharris Workmen’s Hall was built in 1894 and opened in 1895. The funding of the building being paid by subscriptions from the miners employed at the nearby Deep Navigation and Ocean Collieries.
Located in Treharris, near to Merthyr Tydfil, the building was a typical Workmens' Hall design with two shops at its base, either side of the entrance and facing the square. In 1920 one shop unit was a grocery store and the other housed a branch of Barclays Bank.
By 1937 it was the Palace Theatre, and had a 28 feet wide proscenium and a 20 feet depp stage. There were three dressing rooms. At that time the Palace Theatre was equipped with a Klang-Tobis sound sytem. By 1954, an RCA sound system had been fitted.
By 1963, Cinemascope had been installed, with a screen within the original 28 feet wide proscenium. There were now four dressing rooms. The Palace Cinema was still open in 1966, but had closed by 1980.
