The Regal cinema opened in 1937. In 1972 it was redeveloped as a two screen ABC cinema and operated as such until it closed in 1997.
The site of the Regal was taken on by Wetherspoons and re-opened in 1999 with England's largest pub taking over the ground floor and the three-screen Arts Picturehouse taking over the remaining space. The opening of the Arts Picturehouse co-incided with the closure of the Arts Cinema in Market Passage which had to close when the Arts Theatre sold the property to cover losses being made at the theatre.
