One of York’s suburban cinemas the Regent Cinema opened on 12th February 1934 with Maurice Chevalier in “"A Bedtime Story”. It is located in the Acomb district of the city. There were 899 seats in a stadium style with the stalls and raised stepped section at the rear. It was designed by local York architect Willam Arthur Kellet.
It closed on 4th April 1959, the third of the city’s cinemas to shutter due to the declining audiences, and was sub-divided inside into a number of retail outlets. The last film shown was "Sierra Baron". Until recently, when the Co-operative supermarket opened, the large unit on the left side was a furniture shop which used the the original stairs and had the balcony steppings on view in the upper showroom.
