The Regal Cinema Opens Soon

by Jacob on December 18th, 2012

Hi Ho! It's Off To Work We Go!

It's been a busy time at The Regal. We've stripped out and emptied the foyer, auditorium and toilets whilst a motley crew of builders follow after us turning paper drawings into wood, brick and plaster. The auditorium is showing the most progress; the height and depth of each row of seating has been altered to create perfect sight lines to where the new screen will be and we can now walk in our new gangway, which will separate our luxury area and the sofas-for-two from our lovely purple seats.
Elsewhere in the cinema - the current ladies loo (and future gents!) has been opened out to create a little more manoeuvring space whilst a vacant room above the foyer is now part way to becoming the new, spacious ladies loo and powder room.
The foyer is very much a work in progress but the unveiling of the third large, original window has added a lot of much needed natural light to the place and it won't be long before the air conditioning is up and running, with the auditorium following closely behind.
Amidst the chaos that was the removal process, we did some maths.
We now have our ticket prices available for you - don't forget to deduct the £1.00 off that you will receive if you're a member, and be sure to use your free tickets on the luxuries!
Concession (Child/Student/Over 60) - £5.00
Standard Adult - £6.75
Luxury Seat - £8.00
Sofa-For-Two - £16.00

Please note that Concession prices will not apply to Luxury or Sofa seats but there will be no time restrictions so your discount will apply to all shows.
We attended The Victorian Market a few Sunday's ago and were thrilled that we were able to speak to so many enthusiastic people! Thank you to everyone who stopped by and took a leaflet, and an even bigger thank you to those of you who were inspired to buy a membership - every penny will go towards improving your cinema for opening day. Next year we thought it would be nice to end the day with a classic Christmas film, we think we'll let our members decide which one - although I'm hoping for It's A Wonderful Life!
Following the Christmas Fair, the BBC came to film progress inside The Regal for a broadcast in the New Year and then filmed at The Ritz for a feature on the resurgence of cinema which was shown about a week ago. The phone at The Ritz hasn't stopped ringing and now lots of our Belper audience will be coming over to visit Melton Mowbray (and vice versa we hope!) The feature really captured the essence of what The Ritz is and what we want The Regal to be.
We'd like to finish by announcing that the cinema will be re-opening towards the end of March. See you there, and until then have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
