The Regent Cinema in Blackpool

The doors of the Regent Cinema in Blackpool originally opened in 1921, with 1092 seats inside and a retractable roof! For decades it was a popular night out until the appeal of the silver screen tarnished in the late 1960s. By 1969 it was eyes down for bingo during the week. But that all changed in 2016. After some serious refurbishment and restoration, The Regent Cinema reopened the doors once again to the cinema going public.

For example, the old seats (below) were all saved and refurbished. From drab blue to plush red. Single and double seats now available, all with a table for those drinks and snacks. Visit their website
