Redcar Regent Cinema: New venue to open on Friday after setbacks

Tickets have gone on sale for a new cinema which is due to open on Friday after being hit by setbacks.

The opening of the Regent in Redcar, which replaced its 1920s-built predecessor, had to be delayed because a new operator could not be found.

Its opening was again put back after operator Merlin ordered building work to take place to make room to sell snacks in the foyer.

It said 700 people applied for 20 jobs at the Art Deco-inspired venue.

The old Regent closed in 2018 and was bulldozed after being declared unsafe.

The first films to be screened at the new venue include musical comedy Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile and the DC superhero movie Black Adam, starring The Rock.
