The Regal Cinema in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, was opened by Associated British Cinemas(ABC) on 12 October 1936, and was designed by architects J. Owen Bond and W. R. Glen. It had 2,048 seats in stalls and balcony, a 46 foot proscenium opening and a 16 foot deep stage with four dressing rooms. There was an organ installed, a 3Manual/7Ranks instrument by Compton.
In June 1971 it closed for conversion into a smaller cinema using the balcony (with a wall at the balcony front) seating 484, together with a Painted Wagon pub in the rear stalls area. The front stalls and stage were not affected by this alteration, nor were they ever used again.
It was renamed ABC in 1961, became a Cannon, was sold off to Peter Walker and was re-named Regal Cinema, but closed circa 1998. It became a nightclub named Zanzibar, and now operates as Department.
