The Grand Cinema was one of two cinemas operating in Narberth before World War II. (the other was the Victoria Cinema). The Grand Cinema was opened by 1924.

It closed in 1944. Local memory has it that the cashier between 1937 and 1944 was Evelyn James.

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.
