Regal Cinema

The Electra Theatre was the first purpose-built cinema in Doncaster, and opened in 1911. It had an ornate facade, and inside the auditorium were panelled walls. Seating was provided for 700, all on a single floor.

The Electra Theatre was closed in mid-1930 to be modernised to the plans of local architect T.H. Johnson and was equipped with an AWH sound system. It re-opened as the Regal Cinema in August 1931.

The Regal Cinema was closed in December 1957. It was later demolished together with most of the area to build the Frenchgate Shopping Centre.
