This historic Melbourne venue dates back to 1929, when it was a grand picture palace opening just before the start of the Great Depression. Since then, the theater has endured fire and flood, depression and wartime, dereliction and city development, and has been honored by the National Trust of Australia and the Victorian Heritage Register.
The refurbished theater was reopened in 1996 to seat more than 2,000 people and has since hosted some of the biggest stage productions in Australia, such as The Lion King, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Wicked, Westside Story and Cats. It is also one of the Melbourne Comedy Festival venues. 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.
