Regent Street Cinema re-opens after 35 years

Regent Street Cinema re-opens after 35 years

Built in 1848 and housed within the Polytechnic Institution on London's Regent Street, the cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. In 1896, the cinema showcased the Lumière brothers' Cinématographe to a paying audience, and, as the curtain fell, British cinema was born.

After being used a student lecture hall by the university since 1980, it was restored into a working cinema featuring a state-of-the-art auditorium as well as an inclusive space for learning, cultural exchange and exhibitions. It is a truly landmark venue for the British film industry in the heart of London's West End.

The cinema is located at 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2UW
