Built as an Oddfellows Hall in around 1880, by 1902 it was a Masonic Hall. It soon became a live theatre known as the Hounslow Hippodrome, and was closed in 1908. In around 1911, it was converted into the Coliseum Picture Palace. Around 1913, it had a change of name to Coliseum Variety Theatre, with a mixed programme of variety and films.

In around 1915 or 1916 it became the Hippodrome Variety Theatre, which lasted until around 1920. In 1921 it re-opened as a full time cinema and in 1924, under new management it became the Regent Picture House. An Edibell sound system was installed in 1930, and the Regent Picture House was closed in 1934.
