Located in the heart of Blackpool Town, The Regent Cinema invites you to come and enjoy a movie experience like no other!
Originally opening it doors in 1921, The Regent Cinema boasted 1092 seats and a retractable roof. It proved to be a popular cinema for decades before it was used for bingo during the week in 1969.
