Located in the town of Tipton, to the northeast of Dudley in the West Midlands. The Tivoli Cinema was a conversion of a market hall to the plans of architecture firm Scott & Clark, and it opened in July 1910. It was operated by Benjamin Kennedy. In July 1914, alterations were carried out to the plans of architect G. Bowden.

Taken over by Midlands Entertainment in August 1920, it was renamed Regent Picture House. In January 1931 it was taken over by Associated British Cinemas(ABC), and they operated the Regent Cinema until the early-1940’s, when it was taken over by the Marks Circuit Cinemas of Manchester.
