The Regent Theatre was built by Hoyts' Theatres chain and opened on 25th April 1925. It was designed by Ballantyne and Hare and was the first of the fabulous Regent Theatres that were designed by Cedric Heise Ballantyne.

The Regent Theatre closed in 1970 and was demolished two years later.

A lady I knew in America wanted to open a pizza parlour in Melbourne which would have featured a Wurlitzer organ plaaying nightly, and I would have been manager. I had proposed converting the stalls for the restaurant side with an intimate cinema in the former circle. Much the same as the State theatre in Flinder St. was converted by Greater Union in 1962. The theatre was subsequently destroyed by a suspicious fire.
