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 My Fair Lady at Regent Theatre Melbourne. Haven't been to this venue for many years, but it is a grand old, very well maintained theatre, brought back from the edge of extinction and a jewel in Melbourne's crown

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

I am not too sure of the view from these seats. I always go up stairs. Fabulous show. I am sure that you will enjoy it though.

Don't sit anywhere near the centre towards the back of the theatre. We did and our view of the show was almost totally blocked by heads in front.
