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.

“The regal Regent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

I have loved this theatre since I was a child. It's always held a magical place in my heart. The sheer opulance of the theatre brings back memories of all the productions I've viewed there over the years. The renovation was long overdue and I am so glad that it was never demolished. It's a part of Melbourne that should live forever!

A lovely old theatre with great deco architecture. Definitely see a show there if you can. Not a cheap experience, but a worthwhile one.
