The birthplace of British cinema, Regent Street Cinema opened earlier this week for it’s first public screening in years. For those who have become patrons of the cinema we were invited to a special pre launch celebration and screening where we got to preview the cinema restored to its former glory and meet some incredible people.
“The Cinema is a place where we can celebrate not just the past but the future. This is a significant building and it’s wonderful that so many who are passionate about Cinema, the history of film or who have a connection with the heritage and future of the University want to be part of it.”
Sandi Toksvig OBE
It was a fantastic evening and Sandi Toksvig gave a wonderful introduction for the night. After the screenings we caught up with those from the University of Westminster and made some amazing connections with Nigel Walters of The British Society of Cinematographers and the guys from Panavision, Hugh Whittaker and Charlie Todman (pictured below).
Regent Street Cinema opened it’s doors to the public earlier this week with it’s first screening of soon to be released Lambert and Stamp. Watching films in such an incredible and historic building is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss. To see what’s on and book tickets click here.
