Bathgate Regal Community Theatre

Memories of The Regal Picture House and Cinema are very much alive in Bathgate. When it first opened in 1938, The Regal Picture House had seating for 1,100 and had cost £18,000. Reborn several times in its history, Bathgate Regal’s role as a cinema continues. Adults coming to the Film Society remember seeing films such as Grease and Pete’s Dragon in the 1970s. Thanks to the dedication of community activists and to West Lothian Council, Bathgate Regal was established as a Community Theatre in 1995.
Bathgate Regal is the finest remaining example of cinema design by Scottish architect A.D. Haxton. It boasts many original features including beautiful terrazzo flooring in the entrance foyer. Refurbishment of the exterior restored many features of its art deco facade, making Bathgate Regal a truly unique Scottish venue.
BRCT’s vision is of a vibrant local theatre contributing to the social, cultural and economic wealth of the community. They operate with a combination of paid staff and volunteers.
