Theatre now seems to have gone into voluntary liquidation although a separate company did stage the Christmas pantomime Snow White over the festive period.

It reopened as the Regal Community Theatre in 1995 and operates with a combination of paid staff and volunteers. The entrance foyer has original terrazzo floor and the auditorium has a capacity of 206 with tiered seating and 120 when cabaret space is set up. A film society hires the space and shows films twice a month. Regal Radio, a community station for West Lothian, broadcasts from the theatre.

The John Alexander roman centurion splay wall panels in the Forum Hexham pre date those in the Regal. The Forum was built in 1937 and the stalls are now a Wetherspoon pub with a cinema in the circle.

John Alexander also used the same design centurion chariot panels at the Rialto cinema in Benwell Newcastle upon Tyne now demolished.
