A small hall located in the centre of Delabole, Cornwall. This opened as the Picturedrome in 1930. All seating was on a single level. Projection being via BTH Mk.1 equipment. The proscenium was 18 feet wide.

It was re-named Regal Cinema in 1945. It was equipped for Cinemascope in the mid-1950’s and the proscenium widened to 24 feet. During its life span the cinema had a number of owners prior to it closing in the mid-1960’s (closed by 1966). The hall was then left empty for some years only to be sadly destroyed by fire in 1969. An all too familiar story where small town minor halls are concerned.
