Golden and ornate, with velvet drapes, gleaming chandeliers, rich tones and stunning Renaissance Revival architecture, The Regent Theatre offers old-world elegance and a contemporary events schedule.
This historic Melbourne theatre dates back to 1929, when it was a grand picture palace opening just before the start of the Great Depression. Since then, the theatre has endured fire and flood, depression and wartime, dereliction and city development, and has been honoured by the National Trust of Australia and the Victorian Heritage Register.
The refurbished theatre was reopened in 1996 to seat more than 2000 people. The theatre has since hosted some of the biggest stage productions to show in Australia, such as The Lion King, Pricilla Queen of the Dessert, Wicked, Westside Story and Cats. It is also one of the Melbourne Comedy Festival venues. Private events are held in the Plaza Ballroom and other private suites within theatre.
Restaurants and wine bars flank the streets surrounding the Regent, making it the perfect area to have romantic night out with dinner and a show.
