LAST HOUSE FOR THE REGENT
In Amersham-on-the-Hill, 59 years ago this week, 100s of people could be seen queueing down Sycamore Road. They were waiting in line for the Regent Cinema box office to buy tickets for the Oscar winning Audrey Hepburn film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Although a popular film, the high demand for tickets was because the final show, on Saturday 10 March 1962, was to be the last ever screening at the cinema and everyone in the town wanted to be there.
