Regal Cinema

An undated photo of the Regal. Behind it, the Pavilion has been demolished (suggesting late 1950s?). The bulk to the left is a theatre. All that commemorates it is a development called Theatre Court. Even the local newspaper article, from which this image comes, merely called it a theatre. It is not the Plaza. That is in the hinterland behind the camera.

For accuracy: the rear of the stage of the Pavilion faced the far side of the Regal. The length axes of auditoria of the Regal and the Pavilion were at 90° to each other.

The auditorium at the lower left is a development that was stymied by the outbreak of the war. As a shell, it served as a wartime grain store; and looks not to have ever been fitted out and opened to the public. An auction advert from October 1940 called it the ‘New State Theatre’.
