The mission statement of The Regent is to create the most diverse, inclusive and amazing venue in the Northern Rivers while honouring the history and 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, with its glorious architectural details and decor is a destination unto itself. You don’t have to be seeing a movie to visit!
The Regent presents a spectacular program of live performances including theatre, comedy, music and more by local and touring artists, comfortably viewed from traditional tiered seating, says owner, Allira Cornell. The 250 seat auditorium is a premier venue and a growing hub for the Arts.
The Regent has state-of-the-art projections and surround sound in air-conditioned comfort.
The Regent has an alfresco weather-proof balcony, with a view for dining guests that has live music every Friday night from 6pm.
The world food kitchen offers Mexican, Byron Bay Pizzas, Asian street food or Japanese Fusion depending on the night, plus cakes, sweet treats and coffee.
The licensed bar stocks organic wines, craft beers and delicious spirits and cocktails.
The Regent is a part of the innovative M-Arts precinct, a dedicated area for artists and the arts in the heart of Murwillumbah.
