Opened on 16 August 1930 and designed by architect John G. Guthrie in an Atmospheric style, with a seating capacity of 1,568. The auditorium was destroyed by a fire in 1976.
In 1981, two cinemas seating 456 and 888 were built within the shell of the building, designed by the architectural firm Warren & Mahoney. The complex became four cinemas, opening on 13th December 1996 with seating for 96, 103, 127 and 168 and re-named Regent on Worcester.
It was closed on 22nd February 2011, due to the massive Christchurch earthquake. Sadly, the damage was so excessive, that the building was demolished in July 2011.
