Corsham Film Theatre

The Regal Cinema was a small independent cinema that was operating prior to 1937. It had a 23 feet wide proscenium.

It was overshadowed by the first run Odeon and ABC cinemas in the nearby city of Bath. Thus, the Regal Cinema mainly showed third run material on three day cycles.

It operated as the Regal Cinema until 1967, when under new ownership, it was re-named Corsham Film Theatre. It closed on 1st June 1976 with “Mr Superinvisible” and “War Between the Planets”.

Memories I used to be the projectionist there when it was the Regal Cinema and was owned by Mr Norman Jefferies circa 1964

It ran a pair of Ross GC3 projectors with peerless magn arcs with RCA sound system.

Kind regards,

Hi Rai, My name is Sandra. I am the daughter of Norman and June Jefferies (born 1965). I hope you are keeping well. I am trying to find photographs, or the name of, the two very old projectors that were displayed in the foyer of the Corsham Film Theatre. Mum used to have Spider Plants on them :–) They were both hand operated projectors. I see that you were a projectionist at the Regal Cinema, but I am wondering if you knew of, and remember them?
