The Regal Cinemas closed down in August 2006 when the long-delayed opening of the multiplex took place. Bingo continues in the stalls area at present – but for how much longer.

Its the same old story – run a theatre down, forget to replace light bulbs and the community is glad to see a re-development!

Later they will miss the facility, but by then the developers will have had their profits and will have moved on.
