About Us

Land Acknowledgement .

The Regent Theatre is located in the traditional territory of the Anishnabek and Haudenosaunee Confederacy. We are grateful to the generations of ancestral stewards and caretakers of this land for the opportunity to continue to live, work and share stories in this place we call home. As a community that claims descendants from among the original Loyalist settlers, we are grateful to our Kanyen’kehá:ka neighbours in the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and beyond who continue to work with us to find ways to reconcile with our past and pave the way towards an inclusive future.

Our Story

Our story began in 1918, when self-made Greek immigrant George Cook had the vision to build a spectacular hub for entertainment in his new home of Picton. Fast forward a hundred years and thousands of inspiring performances and countless magical moments later, we continue to be Prince Edward County’s only purpose-built cinema and live performance venue.

In 1994...

The Regent Theatre Foundation, a community-based not-for-profit comprised of dedicated volunteers, purchased the theatre with the support of Edna Pearce Gordon and we continue to operate the theatre.

We’re proud to: 

  • Share culture – including the very best of movies, live performance, special events and digital programming.
  • Spark connection –  we’re a gathering space for audiences, artists (we especially love our local creators!) and the wider community.
  • Steward history – we take our responsibility to maintain our beautiful, heritage-listed building seriously. 

We always enjoy sharing our theatre with you,  through rentals to individuals, presenters and community groups.
