Overview

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.

Somethings just don't date well, or maybe I've just grown up since the movie, but honestly, I just felt really sad watching this. Surely we are past the hideous racial stereotyping of an asian mail order bride doing ping pong ball tricks, or the childish...More

What a stunning theatre, absolutely loved it and Priscilla has to be one of the best shows we have ever seen and that is a massive call. Highlight of our Easter weekend, cannot fault the whole experience. Damn good job.
