Description

The Regent Cinema is built in Art Deco style in the 1920s, first it was named New pavilion. It became a cinema in 1965.

At the east facade the stars from 100 years of cinema burst out of the gable end, and a person is hanging on the podium. Depicted are among other Batman, John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, and Marilyn Monroe.
