Since the Regal Theatre became a live theatre, the film screenings stopped, except for when they showed some some surfing and snow skiing films, and “The Sound of Music singalong”(1990’s an/or 2000’s?).

There is information and photos about the Regal Theatre and the other cinemas/theatres, picture gardens and drive-ins' that Paddy Baker(1898-11/8/1988) ran in Western Australia in the book “Paddy baker Picture Show Man(Max d. Bell).

The Coliseum Theatre and Gardens opened in December 1916,and demolished(mid 1930’s) to make for the Regal theatre. The Regal Theatre also had a picture gardens(Regal Picture Gardens) across the road on the North-west corner of Rokeby Road and Hay Street(seating 750) opened soon after the Regal Theatre opened. The Regal Picture Gardens closed in 1971 and demolished in 1973 and replaced with shops. The Regal Theatre has 1200 seats.
