A little down the way from the excitement of Hamley’s Toy Store, just off from the BBC’s Broadcasting House sits Regent Street Cinema, the first UK Cinema to ever broadcast film to a paying audience. After extensive restoration work, the cinema re-opened its doors to the public, carefully returned to its art deco styling. Its foyer nods to this art deco theme with a gold and black colour scheme, and is a pretty great place to relax before watching a film.
We’re all big film goers here at British Tours, so it’s exciting to visit a place that caters to our varied interests. From cult classics like The Big Lebowski and Withnail and I to the modern blockbusters such as Star Wars: the Force Awakens, this cinema has us covered. A minute walk from Oxford Circus tube station, the theatre is perfectly located for an evening film after a busy day of touring London’s great sites.
Regent Street Cinema holds regular screenings throughout the year and several film festivals. For more information click here to see some of their upcoming films.
