“Charming listed cinema”
Reviewed 21 December 2011

An original cinema from the 1930s, still looks the part. But quite new, comfortable seats, and digital projection, even 3D. Terrific!

“A Classic Experience”
Reviewed 22 June 2011

The Regent Cinema in Lyme Regis is like those cinemas you used to go to in the seventies & eighties - before they all became soulless multiplexes or bingo halls.

What happens when you go to the cinema now - multi-screen affairs, pack 'em in, sell as much popcorn as you can & get 'em out quick before the next showing.

The Regent is different - friendly, helpful staff, one screen, and a lovely old-school experience. The cinema is divided into stalls (pretty standard) & an upper circle where you pay £1 extra but get more room and a table next to every seat. And there's a nice coffee lounge upstairs where you can wait in comfort (with popcorn if you want!) for the film to begin.

They even have those local adverts - you know the ones - '...5 minutes from this cinema...'

We go to the cinema when we're in Lyme whether we want to see the film or not! Give it a go, you won't be disappointed.
