Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Opened in 1913, the Regal Theatre closed around 2001, as the the current owner was unable to either sell or lease the theater.

The shuttered 850-seat theater was valued at Euro900,000 but could be sold for over Euro1 million.

A group in Clonmel, Ireland has formed to save the city’s Regal Theatre. Residents are trying to urge the city to buy the theater and re-open it as a performing arts center.

Passed by the former Regal on Saturday. The building stands, apparently empty with only an advertisment for a furniture retailer on it. That is over the corner entrance. This firm may once have used the premises, as the name is Regal, but this firm now has modern premises behind the former theatre / cinema. The building seems to be in good structural condition, well painted but is firmly locked up, so what it is like internally could not be seen.

The theatre was originally built in 1913, the architect was AOM Lovell, with between 700 and 800 tip up seats, and a stage measuring 30x26. For much of its life it ran as a cinema, with stage use on special occasions.

It would seem cinema use ended around 2001.
