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.

“Regent gala.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Magnificently restored. Was designed as moving picture theatre so stage angle and seating is not "perfect" for live shows. Bring a pillow if vertically challenged in some areas but overall, great venue, sound and feel.

“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 23, 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.
