And while the proliferation of movie theater clusters has led to the closure of many independent theaters, this 1920s art-deco auditorium is well-suited to future generations.
General manager Tom Smith said planning for the project began in 2019, with the main goal of improving facilities for touring companies and local groups.
The aim is to implement industry-standard equipment and systems, improve health and safety behind the scenes, and create a productive environment for crew and technicians.
“The work is now complete and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result,” said Tom. “This project would not have been possible without some very important people.
“We have had a lot of support from the Carmarthenshire County Council office officials who advised us throughout the project and understood our vision and goals.
“We have also received very generous financial support from Carmarthenshire County Council and the Mynydd y Betws Community Welfare Fund for which we are extremely grateful.
“This is a large-scale project and would not have been possible without financial support.”
He added: “This is a big step for us and we are more eager than ever to bring more live entertainment to the village.
“For Public Hall to grow and prosper for future generations of the community, we need to diversify further and provide as wide a variety of entertainment as possible.”
Tom said they’re looking forward to supporting the new Brynamman Players theater group, which will put two or three full-scale productions on stage each year.
“We are also working to program a range of future events that will complement our current program,” he added.
“We would like to extend our deep thanks to everyone who contributed to the project in any way and to all of you who have continued to support us.
“We are doing everything we can to ensure that Brynamman Public Hall is a thriving local venue and that it will continue to grow into the future.”
