Regal Bingo Faversham, Preston Street Background And History
The Regal Faversham took over from quite a small cinema, with a capacity for 788 patrons. However, despite its size, it must have been a very impressive building. Having been designed by cinema architect Frederick E. Bromige, it was in the art deco style, although as it was quite small, perhaps he didn't go overboard with the interior. As can be seen form the photo below though, the frontage is quite distinct, and does signal a commitment to design.
It stopped showing films in the mid sixties in the first wave of cinema closures, and was converted into a bingo hall, which itself lasted until 1974, and now, unfortunately the building has been demolished. A sad loss for architecture, cinema, bingo, and the local community.
