It was a Cook family dream, an entertainment venue born in the days of Vaudeville and stage plays, which then embraced the newly-born film and movie industry. It was a dream that created one of Picton’s most iconic monuments – The Regent Theatre. Holding its rightful place in the centre of town, it has survived the ever-changing face of Main Street businesses. It’s had its ups and downs, but it is still the Monarch of Main Street, and author Ian Robertson captures the history and romance of the grand old building.
