Curtain up on return of silver screen to Horley
11:46am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in Local News
Horley's Archway Theatre will host what is being billed as the return of “proper cinema” to the town after more than 30 years.
The theatre in The Drive will be the venue for a double feature presentation under the banner of The Picture Palace this Sunday (March 3).
The night of big screen entertainment – the movies Last Shop Standing and Chessboxing – will start at 7.30pm.
There will also be an after-show celebration with live music from Mojobox.
Horley lost its grand Regent Cinema, which stood in Victoria Road, in 1981.
Opened in 1935, at the height of Hollywood's golden age and that of early British cinema, The Regent's grand frontage with canopy and long and narrow vertical windows design, was typical of the impressive and elegant movie houses of the day.
However, it was demolished in 1981, and its site now contains a supermarket.
