Event Description

The regent Picture House

The Regent Cinema is situated on Church Street, Blackpool, and first opened as the Regent Picture House on the 17th of January 1921. The Theatre was designed by Lambert & Watton and is faced with Middleton’s Fireclay Ceramo tiling which has survived well over the ensuing years. The auditorium was built on two levels, stalls and one circle, and it had a flat roof which could be opened for ventilation purposes.

In 1969 the Cinema went over to part time Bingo use and by August 1973, under Coral’s ownership, Bingo became full time. During its Bingo years several refurbishment took place, including leveling the stalls floor and knocking into the building next door to enlarge the entrance and improve the facilities. Bingo finally ended at the Regent when its then owners Gala Bingo closed it in 1993. The Theatre was later used as a Pool and Snooker Hall from 2007 and a suspended ceiling was installed at balcony level, which helped to preserve the features above it. Later still the Theatre became Riley’s Bar, but this closed down in 2010. in 2013 it  reopen it as an Antiques Centre and Cinema
