A planning application for twin cinemas and a restaurant was submitted to Dover DC in January 2019. There would be a new side entrance on the elevation facing south which is structurally unsound, and the café would have larger windows overlooking the sea.This application is broadly welcomed compared to the one with flats and less sympathatic to the Timeball tower, which was withdrawn in 2014.

200 people crammed into the Astor theatre for a lively meeting about the Regent, held by the Dover DC Scrutiny Ctee. A passionate debate was held, as locals are angry re the 6 year delay. Plans for a 4 screen cinema are promised for Sept 2017. Ctee to investigate how the Council ever came to own this building and whether the ineffective covenant can be revised.

In November 2015 the Regent was designated an Asset of Community Value under the 2011 Localism Act, and a notice to this effect posted outside.

A campaigning group to reopen the cinema on Facebook has been extended to where the long saga of the Regent is documented.
