Debbie felt the young girl from the toilets is name Amy and was now standing round the table by Sam and Margaret. Debbie felt Amy is Andy Warwick's daughter. She was an only child. Mr Micheals is Amy's grandad. Amy hasn't crossed over but her father wants her to. There was also a large fire, which explains Louise's arm feeling hot. Mr.Micheals wont let Amy and Andrew connect with each other so the team encouraged Amy to go to the light.

1:45am:- Sam, Debbie and Louise moved into the room behind the balcony and started glass divination. They connected with a male spirit who was not connected to the building. So when asked if they were connected to someone around the table, the glass moved to Sam. Sam's Grandad, Arthur Morgan, was there to watch over Sam. Sharon and Tracey joined the group at that point and they saw a red flash of light behind Sam, and no cameras were being used at the time.

Amy then came back onto the glass, the team asked - Are you grounded here? - YES Do you want to see your family? - YES The team the tried to help Amy go towards the light, but something / someone was stopping her.
The glass then started moving very differently again, in an aggressive way, the team asked - Are you a male spirit? - YES Is this Andy Warwicks? - YES As the glass kept changing the way it was moving, the team started getting confused with which spirit was on the glass. It was very aggressive. Are you the one who stops Amy going into the light? - YES Debbie felt he wants Amy to stay there so he wouldn't be on his own. Amy is the only family memberthat likes him. He doesn't think he would be made very welcome on the other side. Debbie felt something happened between him and a member of Amy's family, maybe an arguement with Amy's dad. He doesn't want to make peace.
The team tried to guide him towards the light and take Amy with him. The glass stopped. When the team checked to see if he had gone, the glass once again moved to every team member and then started drawing a pentagram. Asthe team were not sure what was happening, they decided to end the session.
3:00am:- Investigation ended.
This location is a great place, some great feelings within the building everything the team experienced may not be put down to paranormal, but is recomended to be investigated a few more times to determain any more paranormal activity
In 1932 local businessman Victor Morral had a idea he was going to build a cinema. With the help of desinger Archibald Hurley Robinson the regal super cinema was born. The art deco building quickly became popular not only in evesham but throu out the west midlands.
Over its years many different staff have all taken their turn in helping the cinema be such a big part of the community. Local book writer Rob Hemming has written a book dedecated too the regal called SHAZAM, which follows the history from start to finish of the cinema.
When you vist the cinema you cant help but be amazed at how from the outside it looks quite small but once in the space inside is very impressive. A small foyar greets you once inside where you can either take the door to your left for the lower seating area or the marble staircase up to the balcony. The cinema itself is farily big toilets either side of screen. Once upstairs the balcony sweeps round but dont stray to close to the edge as this old building has the illusion the lower floor is closer than it really is!! The projection room is wonderful as it still contains the old fashioned projection equpiment .
Sadly the cinema is showing its age but in a away that adds to its beatuy, most of the original features still remain so you can still get a sense of been back in the 1930's . At the time of writing the cinema is under going a massive make over so some day soon the cinema will once again be the talk of the town.
