Owner description: The landmark Regent Theatre holds a key part in our city’s history since opening as a grand picture palace in 1929. Having survived a fire, a flood, 20 years in darkness and many threats of demolition, the venue reopened in August 1996, meticulously refurbished and returned to its breathtaking former glory.Today it stands more lavish and grand than ever and continues to host some of the world’s most renowned theatre productions.

A beautiful building that is a must in Melbourne! Go for a show and experience it in full light!

“A Melbourne Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Nothing to dislike about a visit to this wonderful venue. The restoration is wonderful and the thought that it's existance was once under threat is mind boggling. Love the place

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The decor is magical, I could live there. Staff excellent, atmosphere is incredible. I could go on and on I love this place full stop. My daughter even had her wedding reception next door at the plaza. Staff so professional, I cannot find one fault in their service. Everything was perfect.

“Love this theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

So beautiful, you just want to watch the ceiling as well as the show. Go see a production at the Regent if you are in town. Who cares what it is, you're in Melbourne, go see a show.
