Ynyshir, Fire in the Ynyshir Hall in 1959

In 1959 in the Ynyshir pictures (Cinema) a film was showing that proved to have an ironic title in view of the fact that the place would catch fire during the screening. The film was about Zorro, and was titled 'The Flaming Arrow'. The film had been released a couple of months earlier in December 1958.

In 2006 the Ynyshir Hall and Institute, later used as the cinema, was demolished to make way for a new medical hall. The new building is excellent, and I am sure it will be an asset to the community, but I can't help feeling that a part of my childhood was taken away when the old building was demolished. Thanks for the many special memories.
