The  Regent Cinema
The Regent Cinema
Opened on 17th January 1921, the Regent Picture House has a magnificent white faience tiled fašade on this corner site. A tall domed tower is above the entrance foyer. The tiling is Middleton's fireclay ceramo.

In 1969 it began running bingo on several nights a weeks and by 1971 had become a full time bingo club. In recent years it operated as Riley's snooker hall, but closed in 2010.

It was sold at auction in February 2013 and has since opened as an antiques centre. Future plans are to bring it back into use as a cinema and live performance venue.
