Located in the south Manchester district of Fallowfield. The Regent Super Cinema was opened in August 1929 by Gorton District Cinemas Ltd. It was the first ‘super’ cinema to be designed by architectural firm Drury & Gomersall, and was in a Spanish Colonial style. It was equipped with an 18 feet deep stage and six dressing rooms.

It served the local Wilbraham Road housing estate very well for many years. Around 1959, it was taken over by new owners and re-named Cresta Cinema, but this was short lived and it closed in May 1960.

The building has been demolished and a BP petrol station now operates from the site.
