This article is about the British theater chain. For the American theater chain, see Regal Entertainment Group. For other uses, see Regal Cinema (disambiguation).

Regal Cinemas is a UK-based cinema chain since the early days of the cinema. In 1928, Regal Cinemas became part of Associated British Cinemas but has retained the name 'Regal Cinemas'.

In recent times the number of Regal Cinemas in the UK has decreased, as the number of small towns without cinemas has increased. The town of Northwich has a campaign to bring back their Regal Cinema after it closed in 2007, having served the town for 60 years. The Regal Northwich was an independent cinema run by Cheshire County Cinemas and was not part of the Regal chain. It opened with the film Storm in a Teacup.[1]
