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.

Went to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The singing, dancing and costumes in the show were fantastic. Instead of getting to the theatre on time, try and get there 10 to 15 minutes earlier and actually walk around the theatre and admire the architecture...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Really difficult to answer as there maybe parts of the show hidden, what seat might also play a part. I find the stalls at this theatre are better for view. BEST to talk to the Theatre
