The Kaley lamp houses are under the circle, 1973 (Left) the projetors that were used were in the circle Bell & Howell 16mm. we showed in 1984 “Prince” purple rain. that when it got the two BHT projectors from wales, hauled up the alley way and up to the projection room, and had the asbestos ceiling removed then we were ready for projectors installed and totally new wiring to the power room “amadaus” one of the rectifiers blew up and we started for 2 weeks showing films with with sound but no picture until 20 sec to relight the rods on the second projector.

In 2015 the projection room is being converted into a museum due to the reduced space required by digital. Projectors, tickets and photos will be included, and tours of the Regent Centre will include the box, which has external access
