Brynmawr Market Hall Cinema saved by volunteers

21 June 2013 Last updated at 12:31 BST

One of the oldest cinemas in Wales has been saved by a group of volunteers in Blaenau Gwent.

The Market Hall Cinema in Brynmawr used to be run by the local council but when it announced its funding would stop last month, work began to find a way to keep it going.

In February about 4,000 people signed a petition in support of saving the cinema which is believed to be the longest continuously run in Wales, dating back to 1894.

Here, Peter Watkins-Hughes explains more to BBC Wales Gwent Valleys reporter Paul Heaney.
