Description

Originally built in 1875, the building for the ABC Regal Cinema has been made reconstructed many times with its most prominent renovation back in the 1920s. In 1888 it was considered a pioneering building by being one of the few that had electricity. This allowed the site to be Glasgow’s first cinema. Later on between 1904 and 1927, the property also showed acts from the Hengler’s Circus. The renovation in 1927 saw the building being used as a dance hall, more commonly known as Waldorf Palais. As early then as 1929, it was transformed back to a cinema to which it stayed until its closure in 1999. In 1955 all of its interiors were modernised and in 1967 it received an extension in the form of a second screen. In 2018, the property was damaged in a blaze that collapsed the roof.
