The Regent Cinema aims to create the most diverse, inclusive and amazing venue in the Northern Rivers while nurturing the history and the legacy of this grand old building.
Built in 1947, The Regent has been at the heart of culture in Murwillumbah for over 70 years. Recently refurbished to its authentic Art Deco glory, this majestic building is an architectural destination unto itself.
The Regent is being lovingly envisioned for the future by its owner, Allira Cornell. The Regent presents a spectacular program of live performance including theatre, comedy, music and more by local and touring artists, comfortably viewed from traditional tiered seating.
The air-conditioned auditorium holds 265 people seated and has state of the art technical production and surround sound.
The Regent is a growing hub for the arts including film ( blockbuster, arthouse and cult), workshops, music, theatre and visual art. The Regent has a vibrant world-food cafe on site, a licensed bar, an outdoor covered balcony with a view for dining guests, which is also suitable for smaller gigs or conferences.
The Regent is located next to the innovative M-Arts precinct, a dedicated area for artists and the arts in the heart of Murwillumbah.
The Regent is a Covid Safe Business with social distanced seating.
