The Regent has been saved! A local bidder paid £100,000 for her and has plans to refurb and create an antiques hall. :-D

The Regent Cinema was certainly not “single floored”! It had a circle on the first floor of approximately 200 seats AND a tiny back circle to the left. There were ladies and gents toilets at the end of the right and left hand walkways and a staff room with a tiny kitchen at the back. I loved that place, was an usherette there in 1970-71 and was brokenheated when it became a Bingo hall. I’ll send a picture soon – most of the tiles are still intact but the first few feet of the building have been coated in a white concrete-type substance. Best wishes and thank you for the site!
