Details of the Regent’s life as a bingo hall, and the circumstances leading to its demise are scant, but we do know a bit of the building’s general history.

Having been built in 1913, the Regent had over a thousand seats, and was equipped for variety, although a few years after its opening, it changed to showing films full time. As can be seen from the photos in the gallery, the building’s interior was quite ornate, and its exterior was of classical design.

The cinema closed in 1975 to make way for bingo, and as the building is listed, it has not been demolished since closure, but now exists as a bar.
