I was born & raised in Adelaide from early 50’s so i’m sure i had visited as a child but cannot remember ‘The Rex’……. There is another Cinema that is not listed & cannot remember the name…..perhaps someone out there can…….it was around the corner from Cox Foys in Twin Street….it was on the right side & was on an angle…i can vaguely remember my mother taking me there to see'South Pacific'….that slight curve in Twin St is still there near to Rundle mall as its called today.

As a visiting Royal Navy “killick” matelot in the early 60’s, I spent a lovely (wet) day in the Regent with a couple of dozen movie-starved sailors.
The manager gave us “head of the queue” privilages and half priced tickets. They were playing a “Carry On” flick and it was one of the funniest ever.
Thank you everyone at the Regent for brightening our day. Proudly wearing our uniform ashore certainly paid off. Nowadays, one never sees any members of the Armed Services in uniform. Aren’t they proud any more?
Here in Hollywood, California, I’m the oldest usher (69) at Disney’s EL CAPITAN THEATRE and still love to spoil the countless visitors!

Living in South Australia all my life I cannot remember this theatre and especially only a couple of doors away from my old favorite Regent which recently closed (that is a huge lose) to S.A.
I can remember sitting on a Sat Night at the Regent and seeing the Big Burgandy Curtain going up followed by the Gold curtains behind it.
When the Theatre was divided up I crept in and still remember the workman tipping the organ pipes up and the main chandelier wraped in plastic. I also had a little look in the Melbourne Regent when it was updated. Oh well we still have it. So long to the Adelaide Regent a real sad lose it was sheer class.I think it is now being divided up for retail use. The facia is still there in Rundle Mall

I cannot believe that such beautiful theatre can be demolished.
