Opened on 17th January 1921, the Regent Picture House has a magnificent white faiance tiled facade on a corner site commanding the attention in the area. A tall domed tower is above the entrance foyer. The tiling is Middleton’s fireclay ceramo and it has proved to be a good choice of material, able to stand up to the elements in this northern seaside town.
In 1969 it began running bingo on several nights a weeks and by 1971 had become a full time bingo club. In recent years it operated as a snooker hall, which closed around 2010. In 2013 the building was sold and renovation/restoration work began to bring it back into use as a cinema and live performance venue.
