Great images ‘28 Days Later’ I did some projection shifts here when Northern Morris had it, it was a nice cinema to work in. I remember the screens with bottom moveable masking, up for scope, down for wide screen.

The urban explorer group ‘28 Days Later’ managed to gain entry into the closed down building in May 2008, and recorded the following images:

Application to demolish is circulating – the council have stated it is an “art deco building, but without merit” and see no reason to retain it.

Another original Odeon soon to go?

Gala Bingo vacated the Regal / Odeon building in February, leaving the entire building empty. Its future now looks very uncertain.

does any one know what is going to happen to this fab cinema. I believe Gala Bingo are now moving out! Is the building going to be knocked down or is there any chance of saving it. I would like to view the cinema before anything happens to it. Does anyone have contact details of the owners?

The Regal Cinemas closed down in August 2006 when the long-delayed opening of the multiplex took place. Bingo continues in the stalls area at present – but for how much longer.

Picture, dating from 1992 when it was the Cannon, here :-

The first film shown at the original Odeon cinema of 1936 on 7 November was MR DEEDS GOES TO TOWN. The newly twinned cinema opened on 12 August 1971 with the films SOLDIER BLUE and THE ARISTOCATS.

The cinema was closed as the ABC by Odeon on 1 September 2002 and re-opened by Northern Morris Cinemas Ltd on 17 January 2003 with the films 8 Mile starring rapper Eminem and Gangs Of New York.
