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.
However, on the 29th July 2016, The Regent Cinema re-opened as an independent cinema, showing classic films across all ages.

Do you own the dancefloor - 7th October - 7.00pm
50% of all ticket price being donated to Cancer Research and Kidneys for Life.
‘Do you own the Dancefloor?’ tells what happened when the legendary Manchester nightclub the Haçienda was knocked down and sold off.
In November 2000, many of the key elements from the iconic venue ended up as 69 lots at a charity auction before it was demolished to make way for a block of apartments..
As well as the auction, the film tracks down what happened to the parts of the club itself, whose famous industrial design by interiors guru Ben Kelly included motorway cat’s eyes, traffic bollards and hazard signs.
The documentary isn’t just about the Haçienda. It’s also about the people so affected by their times there, that they had to come to Manchester to bid for bricks, toilets, exit signs and even pieces of the hallowed dance floor – and also about where those mementos are now.
The interviewees include Hacienda DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, Liam Gallagher of Oasis and Peter Hook of Joy Division/New Order.
This special screening begiins at 7.00pm and will also include music before and after the screening together with poetry read by Trevor Meaney.
There will also be a Q and A session with producer and director Chris Hughes afterwards.
