The Regal Cinema was built for Associated British Cinemas(ABC) and was designed by their in-house architect William R. Glen. Seating was provided in stalls and circle levels.
Located in the centre of Twickenham, on London Road, just south of the railway station, it opened on 9th October 1939 with Mickey Rooney in "The Hardys Ride High". The opening was delayed by two weeks due to the outbreak of World War II.
The Regal Cinema in Twickenham had the shortest life of all the purpose built ABC cinemas and closed on 20th August 1960 with Steve Reeves in "Hercules Unchained" and "The Bugs Bunny Show". The building became a rehearsal studio for ABC Television for a while, but was eventually demolished and an office block named Regal House was built on the site, together with a pub named the Rugby Tavern.
