Comments In 1963 the Regent stalls were gutted along with the proscenium arch, stage facilities and dressing rooms. The theatre was leveled off at the dress/circle/lounge to form a single auditorium with full 23 degree tiered seating for 980. At this time the 70 foot deep curve screen was installed with a 15 foot deep curve.
This was based on the Hoyts Design from the Melbourne and Sydney 3 lens Cinerama's that had by now been converted to single lens Cinerama. Never ran an official Cinerama release. Built in the balcony of original 2,240-seat 1928 theatre. In 1973 renamed Regent 1.
