Your Ghost Hunt at The Regent

Whether you’re an experienced paranormal investigator or a beginner, The Historic Regent Cinema in Blackpool is an absolute must!

Built in 1921, as the Regent Picturehouse, it was the go-to place in town to watch the latest big screen releases in what was perhaps the greatest decade of cinema in history.

It closed as a public cinema in the 1960s and reopened as an entertainment centre shortly after. It was then closed, resold and reopened as an independent cinema in 2016, showing classic films of all ages. Honouring the past in the films it showcases, the cinema also houses an antique emporium.

It’s the last surviving example of an old-style cinema in Blackpool, with many of its original historic features still on show today. Stepping foot through the old cinema doors takes you right back to the roaring twenties, and perhaps face to face, with one of the many spirits that are believed to reside here.

Disembodied footsteps, whispers, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions, and eerie laughter have all been reported in this historic building.

Regarded as one of the most haunted locations in the North West, we have exclusive access to the building, with full access to areas otherwise off-limits.

Take part in a vigil, deep beneath the building in the dark and foreboding cellar, or see if you can contact the dark male presence that makes themselves known to visitors by peering over the balcony!

As well as the sighting of the dark male presence, the full-bodied apparition of a lady is often seen wandering throughout this old picture house.

Take part in a host of vigils and experiments as we try to make contact with the active spirits that call this old building home. We have this historic building for an entire night of paranormal investigating in the most haunted areas.

You will join our friendly experienced team taking part in various experiments and seances, as well as having complete access to our range of paranormal equipment throughout the evening.

Do you have what it takes to join us on a real ghost hunt experience at one of the most haunted buildings in the country?

Haunted Rooms events are real paranormal investigations, we leave out the fluff, we do not have actors, and we don’t fake activity.

Our team can’t wait to welcome you to this incredible building and to share a night of ghost hunting that you’ll remember forever.

Spots will fill up quickly for this one, so hurry and book now!

Time: 8:00 PM – 2:00 AM (Arrive from earliest 7:30 PM)

Parking: There’s the 24-hour Caunce Street/Church Street Car Park just a short walk from the Regent. It has 24-hour CCTV and costs £5.00 for up to 9 hours.

Accessibility: The location is somewhat suitable for those with mobility issues. It’s unfortunately not wheelchair friendly.

Please Note: All guests must be 18 years or older. Not suitable for those who are heavily pregnant. Guests are strongly advised to wear comfortable shoes and warm layered clothing on colder nights.

You’re welcome to bring your own equipment, though we will be providing paranormal equipment to use.

The investigation will be in darkness so please bring a torch with you.

Although snacks and drinks are provided, you’re welcome to bring your own. There are also facilities to make both hot and cold drinks, which are provided also.

And of course, bring your phone/camera with you, the more pictures we have the better chance we have of capturing something!

Other than that, just yourself and an open mind!

On your ghost hunt with Haunted Rooms, you will have full exclusive access to this location. Together with our friendly team of investigators, you will join others on structured vigils, where you’ll have the chance to use some paranormal equipment and join in on group vigils such as Ouija board sessions, and seance.

Our event starts at 8.00 pm but you can arrive at the earliest 7.30 pm. Structured investigations will end around 12 am, at which point you will have the opportunity to investigate this location on your own using the techniques and information you have been provided with.

The event is not a sleepover, so it’s recommended you book accommodation nearby if you’re travelling from further away. There are a number of good options for you to choose from being in the city centre.

You will have the chance to look around the picturehouse before the event to familiarise yourself with its layout. Shortly before the event kicks off, we’ll run you through a quick induction and safety briefing, followed by a short talk and introduction from our team. You’ll then split into smaller groups with your family and/or friends if you’ve come together, and we’ll begin our vigils for the night!

If you have your own paranormal equipment we encourage you to bring it, if not we can provide them free of charge. Snacks, refreshments, and treats will be provided at intervals throughout the night, and we’ll have facilities to make hot and cold drinks too.

We do endeavour to have mediums and sensitives with us for every event, although circumstances out of our control can sometimes prevent this. Anybody that has sensitive abilities we encourage you to come forward, as it only increases the energy and enjoyment for all in attendance.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, and if you’re feeling particularly brave you should give a lone vigil a try, as well as joining in with our table tipping experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
