The Regal Theatre, Wells, Somerset, UK
The Regal Theatre was built in 1935, the building is thought to be the best work of its architect Ernest Roberts. It was built to double as a theatre and cinema, with generous stage, and four dressing rooms. Certainly, it is a remarkable survival of a cinema theatre of the thirties, retaining original Art Deco features throughout.
It can be found at Priory Road, Wells, Somerset, England.
I've never been inside but now I know it retains Art Deco features I may well take a peek.
It is now used as a nightclub but as a grade 2 listed building it is subject to planning regulations regarding any alterations.
Wells is an unlikely place to find a building like this as it has a history that goes goes back to Roman times and strong medieval connections.
