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.
We have a fully licensed diner serving a wide selection of snacks and alcoholic drinks with lagers, glasses of wine and single spirits all costing just £2.50.
