The mag­nif­i­cent Re­gent Theatre is one of Melbourne city’s favourite icons that dates back to the 1920’s. This her­itage build­ing tells the story of Melbourne’s the­atri­cal as­pi­ra­tions and dreams. It is also a re­minder of the clas­si­cal past and is a metaphor for per­se­ver­ance and sur­vival. Since its in­cep­tion as a grand pic­ture palace in 1929, the Re­gent Theatre has weath­ered many storms – from fire, flood, clo­sure and con­tin­ual threats of de­mo­li­tion. Re­stored to its for­mer glory, this iconic venue joy­ously re­opened in 1996.

Re­gen­t劇院於1929年首次向公眾開放,當時被看作是民眾心中「夢想中的殿堂」,也是當代最奢華的地方。外觀設計使用當時興起的Art De­co風格,而內部裝修靈感來源於紐約Cap­i­tal大劇院,沿用了18世紀法國的洛可可風的古典與優雅。 如今,屹立於墨爾本市區儼然成為全球性的地標性建築。 Re­gen­t劇院位於柯林斯街,共有3250個座位。其底層的大型宴會廳,配備著當時最著名的Wurl­itzer風琴。散發著古典與藝術的魅力,可與墨爾本國家劇院媲美,每年吸引著大批的遊客。有人說,Re­gen­t劇院刻畫著墨爾本的歷史,見證了維州近百年來的榮耀和輝煌。
