According to a press cutting in the Cinema Theatre Association Archive, the Regal closed on Thursday 27th November 2003. Presumably both screens were operating on that final day, but “Calendar Girls”, starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, was said to be “the final film”. 22 houses, plus six flats and maisonettes, were due to be built on the site. Perhaps indicative of many situations when cinemas close down, one 32 year old member of that last night audience, who lived in the town, said “It’s a throwback to what I remember as a kid. It’s a great shame it’s closing” - before admitting this was his first visit!

John Angle took over the building from EMI and installed 35mm Projection . These were supplied by Les Castree who kept a lot of independents cinemas in business with his sensible terms

I remember watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean film here. This this was released 8th August 2003 in the Uk so it was still open then but due to close at any moment.

The Regal was still operating in July 2003, when manager Mike Flook made me very welcome (we had first met at the Rebel, Bude, when he ran that cinema) and I was able to take my series of photographs.
