Previous Names: Regent Theatre
Located in the Regent Buildings, the Regent Theatre is listed in the 1951-1952 edition of Film Weekly Motion Picture Directory as being operated by Kerridge-Odeon Theatres. The theatre is built to the rear of a two storey building with walk-through access. The proscenium arch is still intact but generally the building is in a deteriorated state. Many original features survive throughout.
It is thought the Regent Theatre opened in 1926 and closed in 1961. In later years it was re-named De Luxe Theatre and was the De Luxe Cinema in 2003. Also it is thought to be designed by Harry Leslie Daniel West of Whincup West architects. The building is registered with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (Listed Category II)
I would love to restore or renovate. Any further details on the building or architects would be appreciated.
