Photograph of Queen’s Road looking south towards junction with North Street and West Street, 1940s.
The Regent Cinema on the left of the photograph opened on 27 July 1921. It cost more than £40,000 to build and was the first of Provincial Cinematograph Theatres Limited’s ‘super cinemas’.
A dance hall opened above the cinema in December 1923. The space had originally been intended for a rooftop winter garden.
