The Regal Cinema was opened on 1st November 1937. It was a a project of the independent company Regal (Trowbridge) Ltd. headed by Birmingham architect Harold S. Scott, who also designed the cinema. It had a 34 feet wide proscenium, a 12 feet deep stage and two dressing rooms.

It was taken over by the Mayfair circuit, as subsidiary of the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) circuit, and ABC took full control from 30th August 1943.

ABC closed the Regal Cinema on 19th November 1960. It was demolished and an Argos store stands on the approximate site of the Regal Cinema. The ‘Regal’ name survives on the new block of flats built in 2001 just along the road.

Regal Court is not the site of the former Regal Cinema, but that of the former TA HQ. The cinema was about 200yards to the right of the picture opposite the red brick 2 storey office block.
