The cinema has undergone an impressive clean up, and restoration is in full swing, with the help from local volunteers and a committed workforce.

The restoration, as well as enhancing the 1930s features to create a period atmosphere with a modern twist, will bring a new screen, seating, bar areas, function rooms, a coffee shop and roof top restaurant, all adding to the development.

Ian Wiper, of the Regal Cinema Evesham Ltd said Its been a great pleasure to show people around the building and to let them see the progress. We have ambitious plans to restore the Regal to its former glory and we are delighted with the very strong and enthusiastic support that we are receiving from local people.

Paul Middlebrough, Leader of Wychavon said This facility will be an impressive addition to Evesham and will certainly enhance the local area. Im very impressed by the current plans and the ambition of those involved with developing it.

Peter Luff MP said "I am delighted that the Wiper family have made this commitment to the future of the Regal. Their enthusiasm is wonderful and I know they are really pleased with the magnificent support they are getting from the people of the town and beyond. I can't wait for the cinema to reopen next year and I will do all I can to help them make sure it happens."
