The Park Cinema become the only surviving cinema in the town after 1968, and owners, Jackson Withers Circuit Ltd. of Cardiff planned to have the cinema redecorated and modernised, but on Wednesday 26th August 1970, the Park Cinema was gutted by fire before the afternoon showing of “Zulu”. The only part of the building to survive the blaze was the cinema frontage and projection room.
The building was soon demolished and the area redevoloped.
