There is a picture of the cover of the opening programme of the Malborough Hall on 20/2/1896 in the book “ Great scientists – The Lumiere Brothers(Steve Parker)” on page 23.

This is heritage listed as Ken’s Intro states: “In March 2015, the Regent Street Cinema was designated a Grade II Listed building.” It also deserves more than 5 comments. On vacation from Philadelphia, enjoyed 2 movies here in 2015 including a screening of “Reds” with the screenwriter on stage, and 3 in 2016 including “S is for Stanley” (with special guests -the co-author & the Archivist of Kubrick’s papers on stage), the “Knack…and how to get it” (with special guests including the author of a book on that period of films on stage), and on Halloween, a screening of Halloween. The historic character of this movie theater is wonderful! There are great history panels in the concessions/bar foyer. It really is neat to have a historic movie theater in the central, commercial shopping district, just as there used to be.

I was a projectionist there when it was a classic in the 70’s

I had confused this cinema with the old New Gallery cinema (a Habitat store until they closed) at the other end of Regent Street near Piccadilly Circus.

The actual new Regent Street cinema, situated in between Oxford Circus and Broadcasting House, has been carefully adapted by the University of London from their old lecture hall, removing the original upper balcony, but building over 200 sumptuous tier seats instead.

Quite the most beautiful cinema in London at the moment, in my opinion.

Disgusting that the cinema will be destroyed. Absolute shambles that this has been given the go ahead.
