An unpretentious looking cinema in the unpretentious town of Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. The 1,500-seat Regal Cinema opened in 1939. There was a café and dance-hall adjacent, which luckily escaped an unexploded German bomb in World War II. It was operated by J.B. Milne Theatres chain. It closed in the early-1960’s and took advantage of bingo after 1961. The balcony area seating was retained, but this area was not used. Granada converted the café into a bar and disco. The Gala Bingo Club closed in January 2018.
In November 2019 work began to convert the building into a 5-screen Arc Cinema. It was due to open in April 2020. However due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this was delayed until 2nd October 2020, when the opening day films were “After We Collided”, “Bill & Ted Face the Music”, “Cats & Dogs 3:Paws Unite”, “Tenet”, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Trolls World Tour”. Seating capacities are: Screen 1 88, Screen 2 62, Screen 3 77, Screen 4 82 and Screen 5 86.
