|The Cinema in the 80s|
35 years after it was closed down and turned into lecture halls,
Britain’s first cinema has flickered back to life.
Situated at the Regent Street in Central London, the first cinema was the first place to show a film in the UK, the Lumiere brothers’ Cinematographer in 1896.
A whooping £6million was spent on its refurbishment. The 119 year-old cinema has been rebuilt in an art-deco style by architect Tim Ronalds and it will introduce audiences to moving pictures.
