  • Cinema Paradiso at The Regent Cinema

Have you caught a film at The Regent Cinema yet?  Originally opened in 1921, The Regent Cinema was a popular cinema for decades before it was turned into a bingo hall in the 60s. Now it has been lovingly restored as an independent and licensed cinema featuring classic films.

On February 15, catch “Cinema Paradiso” at in one of the unique couple’s seats for just £14.50 for the pair of you! Cinema Paradiso is an Italian language film and a love letter to the art of filmmaking, as well as featuring a sweet and gentle romance. The film demonstrates a great love of old-fashioned cinema and a nostalgic look back at post-war Italy. Get snuggled up and enjoy this iconic film!

  • Viva Comedy Station

The Comedy Station is Blackpool’s longest running comedy club, and it remains one of the most popular in town. Compered by Ryan Gleeson, an evening at this show includes brilliant performances from three comedians, from up-and-coming performers to seasoned stars. The comedy here isn’t for the faint-hearted, but we visit frequently and have an excellent time with every visit.
