Part of the Merlin family, the Regal Theatre in Redruth is so much more than just a cinema. Occupying a stunning 1930s art deco building on the town’s busy high street, the cinema first opened in 1935 and has undergone several rounds of refurbishments both inside and out over the decades. The exterior has been quirkily decorated with a tower and distinctive neon lighting in vertical and horizontal strips, offering a distinctive frontage.
As well as screening all the popular Hollywood blockbusters on its six screens, its 650-seat auditorium, complete with circle, box and stalls seating, also stages a varied programme of theatrical, musical, comedic and family-friendly performances all through the year.
Screen seven remains one of the most popular choices for avid cinema goers who like something a little different: equipped with comfortable sofas, seating and tables, this particular screen offers a full waiter service so visitors can keep their glasses topped up throughout the showing.
The theatre boasts its own integrated bar and restaurant, serving up light bites, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. Each of the cinema’s screens has a full license, so visitors are permitted to take drinks in with them as they enjoy the show.
A cloakroom and toilets are available in the vestibule. To find out more about screenings and performances at this charmingly intimate venue, visit http://redruth.merlincinemas.co.uk/regal-theatre.
