Comparison of original auditoria, Sydney and Adelaide.
Both Sydney and Adelaide had similar arched prosceniums lit in changing colours, 3/15 Wurlitzer organs and fly tower stages with full facilities. The original photographs, taken by professional photographers for Hoyts Theatres, have been used as the only ones available for this purpose. Copyright remains with them.

The Sydney and Adelaide Regent theaters were both designed for Hoyts by Cedric H. Ballantyne and were constructed almost simultaneously in 1927/8, so the similarities in design are not really a surprise.
