Work happening at the Regal Theatre

16 May 2016

In recognising the significant role that the Regal Theatre plays and has played in the Burnside community for over 90 years, The City Of Burnside is pleased to announce the refurbishment of the Regal Theatre’s bathroom facilities.


Originally built in 1925, the Regal Theatre, formally known as the Princess Theatre, Marryatville Ozone and The Chelsea Cinema, had an extensive refurbishment in 1941 and was altered to the current Art Deco style. The Regal Theatre is a State Heritage listed building and one of three relatively intact Art Deco Cinemas in the state.


The Council in conjunction with Kate MacDougall (Conservation and Heritage Consultant), Tom Baxter (Regal Theatre Manager), Bill Kay Architect and Heritage Stone Restoration are taking great care and consideration to ensure the historic character of the Regal Theatre is maintained whilst improving the comfort and functionality of the theatre.


The City of Burnside would like to share the development experience and will take you through the refurbishment process step by step with weekly updates and photographs.
