  • Donen and Kelly's last musical together, and an exhilarating - if rather odd - follow-up to the marvellous On the Town. Dealing with three soldier buddies who reunite ten years after the war, only to discover that they now have nothing in common, ...

    It’s a good job they’re putting this ravishing new print of ‘Gone with the Wind’ in cinemas now – before Steve McQueen’s ‘12 Years a Slave’ arrives in January to show us what American slavery really looked like. Its stereotype of happy slaves and ...

  • After the dismally miscalculated School Daze, Spike Lee returns to splendid form with a pacy, punchy ensemble piece set in Brooklyn during one stiflingly hot 24 hours. Lee himself plays Mookie, pizza delivery-man for Sal (Aiello) and his two sons;...

    This very personal doc comes from the perspective of a nephew remembering and researching his long-gone uncle. Aaron Brookner’s uncle Howard was a face on the 1980s downtown New York scene and a filmmaking contemporary of Tom DiCillo and Jim Jarmu...

    Famously, Frank Zappa had this to say about music critics: ‘Most rock journalism is people who can’t write, interviewing people who can’t talk, for people who can’t read.’ It’s a zinger, and Zappa is a thorny twentieth-century giant who truly dese...

    In ‘Chi-Raq’ (the title rhymes with ‘eye-rack’, evoking both violence-ridden Chicago and Iraq), provocative American filmmaker Spike Lee (‘Do the Right Thing’, ‘25th Hour’) weds his socially minded fury to a giddy musical – often with euphoric res...

Over 55?   A  classic matinee on Wednesdays for £1.75 including tea and coffee!  plus very comfortable seats and a live organist playing before the film.  Fantastic.

Quite a majestic place, with amazingly comfortable seats and atmosphere that takes you back in time.

If I am being honest, one visit to this place and it made me a bit of a cinema snob. Now I would rather visit cinema it on rare occasions and make an evening out of it, and really choose a quality movie. Takes viewing movies on whole another level! Regent Street Cinema is for lovers of classical movies, products of movie elite.

This place is the best! We went the week it opened and saw an old black and white French film in just the fanciest setting - it looks like where Humphrey Bogart would have taken a date to see a film. It's amazing that it exists, just off the main drag of Oxford Street, and is a far more pleasurable experience than going to an iMax or Leicester Square multiplex. It's London (or maybe England?);s first cinema, and was recently restored to former glories. Go Go go!
