  • Wonderful cinema. Helpful staff. Good location. Air con would have been nice on hottest day of year.
  • The Regents Street Cinema is a gem. Perfectly restored period cinema regarded as "the birthplace of British cinema". Immaculate with a great bar and friendly staff able to show archive footage on the big screen and the movie tonight 'Bait' was preceded by a 1920s short showing scenes of Cornish fishing village life. Altogether a unique cinema experience. The point of going to the cinema is the film, however, and the volume was uncomfortably high. I complained to the staff who said that the projectionist was not in the projection room so they would pass the message on. Whether it was passed on or not I can't say but I persevered thinking the problem would be solved, it wasn't. A good film ruined.
