Five Reasons to Visit the Regal Twin Cinema

16 Dec
by Brad Robson

The Regal Boutique Twin Arthouse Cinema  has been an institution in Graceville since its inception in 1921.

One of the oldest picture theatres remaining in Brisbane, it definitely provides an incomparable experience and second-to-none entertainment.

Here are five reasons why you should consider visiting the Regal Twin next time you want to see a movie.

The History

The Regal Twin has had the same ownership for more than 40 years, so the owners have seen the area grow and change.

It was named The Regal because of Queen Elizabeth’s II coronation.

This cinema initially started off as an open-air cinema screening silent films, but over the years has become an indoor cinema now screening independent and arthouse films from all over the world.

The Candy Bar

Like any good cinema, the Regal Twin has a pretty special candy bar.

Lollies and lots of other treats line the walls and you’re sure to find something to satisfy you during the movie.

They’re happy for you to bring your own candy if you’d like if it’s the same as what they sell, but to quote the cinema “Nobody wants to sit next to someone shelling prawns!”

Arthouse Flicks

The Regal Twin often shows films you can’t find anywhere else in Brisbane.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, or some of the most popular European or foreign-language films, the Regal Twin always has a great selection on offer with regularly rotating films on offer.

This cinema has a sophisticated feel and it’s an experience you won’t get anywhere else.

Location

Located on Honour Avenue, the Regal Twin is in the centre of all of the hustle and bustle of Graceville.

If you aren’t from the area, it’s easy to catch a train or bus to the picture theatre, but there is also lots of parking nearby - including right out the front!

There is also an amazing selection of restaurants and cafes nearby, meaning you can add to the experience by grabbing some food or dessert before or after the movie.

It’s Independent

There are only a few independent cinemas around in Brisbane, and this is one of the originals.

By seeing a film at the Regal Twin, not only are you supporting locals and seeing some awesome films, but you’re helping to keep this piece of history alive.

Their prices are reasonable, staff are friendly and knowledgeable and you get a real, old-fashioned cinema experience (but with modern technology!).

We are so lucky to have a cinema like the Regal Twin in our area, and we hope it will continue to entertain families for years to come!
