“Great acoustics, entertainment, and an intimate setting for a great evening!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed an evening with Randy Bachman at The Regent Theatre. The great acoustics, entertainment, and an intimate setting was the setting for a great evening listening to the life events that led to the creation of songs such as, These Eyes, American Woman, etc. so much fun and such an interesting life and career of a Canadian icon.

“Customer Service Experience”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Being spoken to rudely & hung up on by box office staff is UNACCEPTABLE! Their online ordering system is archaic & the line that "there isn't a bad seat in the house" is a load of BS. Spend the extra $20 & go to Toronto!

“Beautifully restored, bringing culture to our city”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The former movie theatre has been restored beautifully. I have recently visited the Regent Theatre to see pianist Anton Keurti and the Symphony. Both were wonderful and a pleasure to see. We are fortunate to have this talent brought to our city in this lovely theatre.

“Excellent Music & Arts Venue”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Thank goodness the local University took ownership of this historic building in downtown Oshawa. Back in the day it used to be the Regent Movie Theatre. Sadly, it was converted into various night clubs over the years. Luckily the University restored it to it's former vintage glory. It is now a pleasure to visit. The raised stage is easily viewed from any seat in the house. Offers a comfortable atmosphere with very good acoustics. Check their website as they have many concerts and events. Just sit back, melt into your chair and enjoy the show!

“Worth it to See”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I remember going here as a child to see movies and always loved it here. When I had to opportunity to visit again after the restoration, I jumped at it. I was there for the Oshawa Symphony and not only was the inside very well redone, but the sound was great! I will definitely go again!
