Located in Kimberley, Nottinghamshire, to the northwest of Nottingham and northeast of Ilkeston. The Crown Cinema was opened prior to 1914 and had 350 seats. It was also known as the Kimberley Picture Palace. It was closed by a fire in 1919.

It was restored and re-opened on 9th February 1920. Alterations were carried out in 1930, and the seating capacity increased to 436, perhaps a balcony was built? From June 1930 it was operating as the Regent Picture House and was equipped with a Morrison sound system. By 1932 this had been replaced by a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system.

The Regent Cinema was taken over by S. Graham Circuit of Nottingham around 1938. It was closed on 12th April 1957.
