The Regent was opened on Christmas Eve 1938 by Solar Cinemas Ltd of Belfast. It was a new building designed by architect T. R. Eagar; the first manager was Harris Percy. The building was destroyed in an incendiary bomb attack on Sunday 9 October 1977; the final films shown were screened the day before.
