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.

We chose to sit in the dress circle as it usually provides an excellent view of the orchestra however, in the production of My Fair Lady, it was not possible to see any of the members of the orchestra, only the conductor. Very disappointing. Upstairs...More

This theatre is stunning. It has very elaborate decoration and some very "genteel" touches such as old worldly and elegant powder rooms.

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

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

I would like to know where you can eat either pre the 6pm Sunday show or after the show approx 8:45pm, it needs to be very close due to mobility issues. Thanks Liz

Hi Liz. We ate at Terra Rosa. We booked an early dinner so we could eat before our show. It literally is just around the corner. Hope this helps

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.

What seats are better in Regent? Any seats on the side of stalls or 15 rows back in stalls in centre section?

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.
