Regent Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Mumbles/Oystermouth district, about 10 minutes out of Swansea. The New Cinema was opened in 1927. It was soon renamed Regent Cinema, and was still operating in 1937, but had closed by 1939 after the new Tivoli Picture Theatre had opened.

The building was then used for storage, the by the Home Guard during World War II. Later used as a nightclub/restaurant, it became a bingo club in the early-1960’s, then returned to nightclub/disco use by the mid-1960’s.

In 2009, the building was in retail use as an indoor shopping arcade, known as Castleton Walk.

A pity, a very accurate short history of Regent Cinema, Newton Road, Mumbles, but the photo is actually not the Regent Cinema Mumbles. The photo shown is the New Cinema, Oystermouth Road, Mumbles and the original copy is held by West Glamorgan Archive and dated 1922.
