Regal Cinema was a technological marvel, at the time, and at the forefront of Bombay’s Art Deco era.
The cinema was built in 1933, to celebrate the golden age of cinema and glamour in the city. It was the first cinema in town to have air-conditioning and even provided an elevator to take its affluent patrons from their underground parking bay up to their plush balcony seats.
