1937: On 18th January the Regal, Old Kent Road was opened with Charles Smart at the Compton.

1963: The Theatre was re-named ABC.

1965: The Compton was sold to a private buyer who installed it in the Memorial Hall, Old Windsor. The organ underwent several changes: Firstly five ranks were added, these were a Viola Celeste, Vox Humana, Stopped Flute, Clarinet and Oboe. On top of that a Vibaphone and Upright Piano were also added. The Melotone was deemed in-operable so it was donated to the Musical Museum, Brentford as spares. The Illuminated surround wouldn’t fit in the memorial hall. (This is now at Singing Hills Golf Course)

1969: In January the Compton officially opened with Jackie Brown and Vic Hammet at the console.
