The Regal Cinema was built in Tenbury Wells in 1937. It was decorated in art deco style and the auditorium featured an Italian scene mural with ‘trompe l’oeil’ details painted by the artist George Legge.
The Regal operated as a commercial cinema until 1966 when fading audiences finally forced its closure. Tenbury Town Council bought the building, saving it from demolition, and various volunteer groups over the years have given their time to continue showing films at the Regal. The building also has an extended stage fitted for live entertainment and a community centre built at the back.
The box office is open at the Regal between 12pm and 3pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Whilst the box office is manned, the public are welcome to view the auditorium as long as it isn't in use. Other viewing times can also be arranged; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Entrance to view the auditorium is free. Ticket prices for films and live shows vary by show.
Free guided tours of the building are also available. Please contact email@example.com for details.
