History of the Regent Theatre: 1998

By Allan Webb Prev | Next

The new James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies and the new Disney remake of The Absent Minded Professor, Flubber, along with Titanic gave us an incredible holiday period and it just kept going that way.

Mousehunt and A Fairytale plus Titanic gave over 5,000 admits in the April holidays.

By the middle of the year, business had started to drop off but the holidays were very good with over 5,000.

The Borrowers was very good and several other films were doing well.

Until the next school holidays things were patchy but another 5,000 turned up mainly to see the remake of Dr. Doolittle.

The sexy restricted comedy Something About Mary kept on doing well and Tom Hank's Saving Private Ryan which was a tough restricted show, kept going right through the new year concluding at Easter. The worst week before Xmas was an acceptable 414.
