I was so sad when I saw the coverage of the beautiful cinema going up in flames. Luckily it will be being rebuilt, but it will take time. In the meantime the Marine Theatre is showing select films so keep an eye out. We saw Dad's Army there today - £5 each for ticket, tea or coffee and a biscuit.

This lovely old cinema with its Art Deco styling was our favourite place to go on winter mornings, especially to the Silver Screen showings. It was very much refurbished just before the fire and the fire itself was a great shock to the local populace. We look forward to the rebuild which we are assured will be in keeping with... More

It will be rebuilt, meanwhile it will be missed. It was a listed structure, and insured as such. there are Youtube films of the fire.

We were telephoned back with details as promised . Very helpful staff and beautiful Art Deco cinema. The building is worth going along to just 'take a look' from outside if nothing showing you like.

My wife and I recently visited the Regent cinema in Lyme Regis for the first time, and I felt it only fair to write a review as it was a real pleasure. First of all the cinema, which I know has been recently refurbished, was very nice indeed, with all the facility's one could wish for and looked very smart,... More

Went to see Star Wars, balcony seats with tables were cool, seats comfy, love this cinema. However the sound wasn't great speech seemed mumbled, thought it was me so asked others, it wasn't me. The manager or I assume was the manager was miserable, you can't be like that in a service industry!

Our local cinema so have attended many times. Just seen the new James Bond film (Spectre) and consider it great value with senior citizen prices and "Meerkat Movies" 2 for 1. Recently refurbished, this cinema is friendly and welcoming and the seating is comfortable with plenty of leg room. Can take drinks into the auditorium. Always choose the stall seats... More

We've visited Lyme Regis for over 20 years, but have never before tried the cinema (just been lucky with the weather!). Having now bought there we find ourselves experiencing out of season weather, and one rainy afternoon decided to try the cinema. Booked on line for Spectre and found the process very straightforward. As a consequence we hadn't actually got... More

Went to see Spectre this evening. Usually go to the Plaza in Dorchester, but that has been fully booked all week. There were tickets to the evening showing at the Regent. I last went here in the mid 90s. It was a traditional cinema then, old seats, wooden floor and the manager said good night to everyone as they left.... More
