Regent Marple

Originally built as the Union Rooms in Marple, a small town close to Stockport, Cheshire (now part of Greater Manchester). It was converted into a cinema to the designs of architect R.N. Sampson of Sheffield, and the Regent Cinema opened on 22nd August 1931 with Renate Muller in “Sunshine Suzie”, and a total seating capacity of 545. There was a small stage 6 feet deep and two dressing rooms. The proscenium was 18 feet wide. The Regent Cinema was closed on 3rd August 1968. An application was made to use the building as a bingo club, but it was refused.

In 1969 a new owner refurbished the Regent Cinema and it re-opened in May 1969 as the New Regent Cinema with 285 seats. It has been operating ever since.
