I used to live across the road from the Regent, as it was in the 1930s. Sometimes, the staff would dress-up for certain films. The one I clearly remember is Flaherty’s Man of Aran, with the commissionaire in oilskins and sou'wester.

porterfaulkner, many thanks for your correction. I have just looked….. and I wrote the date 1984 on the rear of my demolition photographs. The 1981 date I took from Allen Eyles excellent book ‘Gaumont British Theatres’ and I will amend the above opening introduction to this theatre.

Ken, I think this was eventually demolished much later. I worked in the area around 1982/3 and remember it being demolished and having to use the hideous Safeway. A sad loss.

The two blocks of flats remain, but where the cinema was located is now a Safeway supermarket:
