Opened in 1939, the Regal Cinema was one of only two cinemas in Kelty, which is a small mining village in Scotland. It was built by local businessman Tommy Taylor and was operated as an independent cinema. He managed and operated the cinema until the mid-1960’s. The advent of TV in the area forced him to boost business by introducing bingo sessions. Eventually he sold the business and retired. It was taken over by a group from Lochgelly, named Timmins.
The Regal Cinema was closed as a cinema in 1964 or 1965 and converted into a bingo club. It was demolished in the 1990’s and a small Council office and car park is on the the site today.
