Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Regent Theatre has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
Regent Theatre has been a part of Melbourne’s rich heritage since early last century. Back in 1929, this theatre first opened as an impressive palace – However, the fate of the Regent Theatre had much turmoil to experience in the coming years.
The theatre survived a flood and fire, and after twenty years, the venue was refurbished and renovated. In August 1996, the theatre was reopened to the public after a series of renovations and changes.
