The Tivoli Music Hall was opened in 1868. It began screening films as part of the programme in the early-1900’s. It was taken over by Jame Brennan in around 1917, and films became more prominent in the programming.

In 1931, it was converted into a cinema, to the plans of architect J.F. Parker and it re-opened as the Regal Cinema on 14th September 1931. The Regal Cinema was taken over by the union Cinemas chain in August 1936, and they were taken over by Associated British Cinemas(ABC) in October 1937.

The Regal Cinema was the first in the town to be closed when ABC programmed Charlie Chaplin in “The Gold Rush” on 29th December 1956. The building was demolished in the mid-1980’s.
