Regent Cinema opened in 1931, making it nearly 100 years old! All of the 100-year-olds I've had the privilege of meeting have needed a lot of support to stay on their feet, and this cinema is no different! With big movie studios abandoning cinemas in favour of online streaming, the cinematic landscape has never looked so dire. Local, independent cinemas have never needed cinemagoers more than they do right now, and if you live in the Manchester area, the Regent Cinema is the best place you can go.

Not only does the cinema provide a place of heritage for the community to enjoy movies, but they also offer kids showings on Saturdays to give them a taste of traditional cinema. The red seats, the choc ices, the popcorn and of course the big screen all make for more than just entertainment, they make an experience. One that cannot be felt from sofa at home nor at a multiplex.
At Regent Cinema, you can be sure that your money is going to support a business that will give back to the local community, instead of lining the pockets of some estranged billionaire. At Regent Cinema, you can be part of a history of cinema that stretches back to wartime.
So I implore you, if you care anything for the traditional cinema industry and can't bear for another independent business to struggle unheard, please support the Regent Cinema. And make sure to buy tickets as soon as doors open again in February 2021!
