New tenants set to reopen Melton Mowbray's Regal Cinema
Melton Mowbray's Regal Cinema - which closed at the end of June - is expected to reopen again as a cinema, following news that the letting agents have agreed a deal with a new commercial operator. The signs outside now read 'LET subject to contract' although the agents are unable to confirm the identity of the new tenants, until all paperwork is completed.
Following the closure, local resident Sue Bailey launched the 'Save Regal Melton' campaign, and at a public meeting last month, around 100 people backed their plans to form a social enterprise to bid to run the cinema. However following news of the letting, the steering group updated their 'Save Regal Melton' Facebook group to say:
- "Our plans for a Community Interest Company have been put on hold, although if for any reason the deal falls through, we would be ready to move forward again."
"When we began this process, our primary desire was to see The Regal Cinema re-open and we are all delighted that this looks likely to happen again soon."
