The Regent Centre

Cinema, theatre, concert hall, art gallery and entertainment centre

The Regent Centre is situated in the middle of Christchurch High Street and is the Cinema, Theatre, Concert Hall, Art Gallery and Entertainment Centre serving Christchurch, East Dorset and the New Forest.

Opened in 1931 but now, the Regent Centre is one of the finest examples of an early 1930s cinema to survive in Britain.  Its 450 seats are regularly filled for events as diverse as the latest film releases to professional touring theatre, jazz, big band, ballet, opera and celebrity star shows.  The Regent is also the home venue for many local amateur companies, who regularly stage productions at the Centre.

The Regent Centre is open 365 days a year and has a full program of Film, Live Music, Theatre, Concerts, Broadcasts and Much More. You can also enjoy a coffee in our Foyer Cafe, as well as viewing work by local artists. We are also home to the Town's Information Centre situated in our building alongside the foyer.
