History[edit]

In the beginning, Mother Lily and her father Remy put up a popcorn stand at the Podmon Theater in C.M. Recto, Manila (which served as the head office of Regal before it moved to the Valencia studio). Regal Films was started by distributing foreign films, such as That Man from Istanbul, Marsha and All Mine to Give, pouring funds for Mother Lily to produce a local movie. In 1976, Mother Lily asked permission from her father to produce her first project, Kayod sa Umaga, Kayod sa Gabi, that became a big hit then in theaters. Alma Moreno was the first star who had an exclusive contract with Regal, becoming the first of the Regal Babies.

In its early years, Regal Films produced local movies with a "mature" and "daring" style, although it also produced "wholesome" pictures. In 1987, it ventured in local television; "Regal Television" produced several entertainment programs in '80s and '90s and aired in three different channels, ABS-CBN 2, GMA 7 and IBC 13.[1]
