The Regal Cinema Opens 15th March!

We're Not In Kansas Anymore...

We are very happy to announce that The Regal Cinema will open its doors to the public on Friday 15th March!

With our deadline swiftly approaching the pace has picked up here at The Regal. The auditorium has become populated with seats and the screen has been constructed. The walls are now covered in glorious purple and black deco-cord, an acoustically treated fabric that will bring out the best in our top of the range 7.1 surround sound system. The new 25ft screen is then framed by beautiful, fully functioning, crushed velvet curtains in a throwback to a golden age of cinema. In a matter of days our clutter of tools and debris has been turned into luxurious auditorium. Things are starting to appear finished.
Less noticeable but no less significant events have also happened; we have hot water for the first time, the ladies loo has been tiled and grouted and even the plants on the balcony have been given a sprucing up.

Of course, anybody who has been in town in the past few days will no doubt have noticed our beautiful new sign. Lots of people have been stopping by to take photographs and to share their kind words; we hope the interior changes will earn us the same response.
In the foyer of the cinema, hammers and chisels have made way for computers and laptops; this has let us update our website and finalise our first monthly programme which has gone to press. The website now includes a ‘How It Works’ page which will help guide new customers through some of the changes that have been made to the way The Regal works – it’s definitely worth a look!

We’re delighted with the content of our first programme; there are so many great films. We have some Oscar winners and indie films, along with an all-time classic and a great French film. The programme will be released to the public on Saturday 9th and bookings can be made from one o’clock that day. See the ‘How It Works’ page for more details on opening times and booking times.
As a result of the completion of the first programme we have finally been able to post out membership packs to those patiently waiting for their cinema to reopen. The packs will include your membership cards, your free tickets, the first of our monthly brochures and an invite to a special preview screening so you can see your beloved cinema before anyone else.

Thanks to everybody who’s taken the time to read these blogs for the past few months, we look forward to seeing you when we open!

Really pleased... BUT a quick look at the month's films is a bit worrying. Skyfall was out in cinemas last October- I can watch it on iTunes etc. Lincoln came out in January, Quartet - Jan, Les Mis - Jan....etc. I'm worried the cinema will not succeed if the films are always months behind the new releases. I'm all for showing a mix of classics, indie films, foreign language etc but no-one wants to watch the last releases, just two or three months after everyone else. Hopefully this won't be a sign of things to come and once and up and running the newest releases will complement the other films selected. Can you reassure us that will be the case?

im dissapointed with the "silver screen" element of the program i was hoping it would be showing old classics(seven samuri(my personal wish),maltese falcon,brief encounter that sort of film) not current crop of new films just in afternoon slots,you have to wait untill late april for something of substance.i thought this new beginning would herald a new approch to cinema for us of a more mature(?) nature but it appears not.i was thinking of becoming a member but not now.
