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.

Used for functions and theatre these days this old film theatre is decorated in high Egyptian crossed with King Arthur's Arabian Knights style- hard to define. Well worth a look if you want to see how the movie palaces of the thirties to fifties were decorated.Flamboyant!

Takes your breath away upon entry!! Love seeing live performances at the Regent. The staff are always friendly. You can see from every seat. Toilets are clean and the slushies are yummo.

The theatre is a fantastic location for an awards celebration. The old style setting gives a great atmosphere. The meals and the service were excellent. It was a fantastic event.
