Picton is the place to be. Great vibes, quaint streets with interesting and artsy businesses. The Regent has 400 seats which were filled to capacity for the live show we attended. Refreshments available including alcohol and very relaxed about taking food and drinks into the theatre. Great sound and visibility from every seat. A really pleasant community-minded spot which hosts all kinds of great events.

I attended three days of the Jazz Festival 2019. The main events took place at the Regent Theatre, but there were many other venues.
The Regent Theatre is an excellent location, one that would not normally be expected in such a small place. It is relatively large, has very comfortable seating and the acoustics are excellent. This was my first time to Picton, but it certainly won't be my last.

Eagles tribute band provided a nostalgic Saturday night out for us. The theatre itself brings back memories of small town theatres, long before the commercialized multi-screen behemoths we see now.
Good acoustics, very spacious and comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Accessible seating is also available.
The only negative issue I have is there seems to be no smoking restriction in place in town. As a result, at intermission and prior to the start of the concert, we had to run a gauntlet of smokers standing within a few feet of the entry doors, and butts were accumulating rapidly on the sidewalk.
I would still recommend attending one of the many varied shows at this historic place.

The theatre is a lovely historic building run by volunteers. Seating is comfortable and. No problem seeing the stage. The concert we attended wasn't our cup of tea but we will definitely try again! We will probably get seats further back as we found it very loud.

Enjoyed a show at the theatre. Small venue with good acoustics and an intimate feel. Volunteers are enthusiastic and ready to help. Service at box office was excellent.

Oh my gosh, this theatre was a true gem. I liked the vintage feel of it and I was amazed by the prices. It was 12 dollars to see a brand new movie for the two of us, usually 12 per person at home. The screen isn't huge but I didn't find that to be an issue.

The Regent has tons of movies, live theatre, and musical artists on a regular/daily basis. "The Trews" are here soon for a repeat performance as an example. Most first-run movies find their way to the big screen as well as Cinefest, Docufest, and live comic hilarity such as the recent appearance of 22 Minute's Mary Walsh. Also a free monthly movie for kids on a Sunday afternoon.

I've never been to a movie at the Regent but I'm sure it would be awesome also. I know they bought a new projector a couple of years ago - a digital one (they did a few fundraising events around it). Their prices are fair and the theatre is historic, beautiful and the seas are comfy.

I digress though - I've only seen live performances at the Regent and that is where it shines! The acoustics are good, the setting is intimate, and intermissions are always full of good conversation if you let yourself mingle. County folk are super friendly and like a good laugh!
