The Grand Pavilion was built on Spa Road Recreation Ground in 1912 at a cost of £4,750. It was used as a concert hall, dance hall and theatre. Originally there was a balcony all the way around the building, which was used by Lord Baden-Powell when he gave a speech to a Scout Jamboree in April 1933. The proscenium was 25ft wide. By 1944 it was used as a 900-seat cinema, run by the Welsh chain of Paramount Picture Theatres and was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system. In more recent years it has been operated by Whale Cinemas. The building was refurbished in 1994 by the Town Council. In 2015 it is closed and the County Council has put the building and the grounds that surround it up for sale.
