Regent Theatre

53 Broadway Ave, Palmerston North

Regent Theatre

When the Regent Theatre opened on 4 July 1930 it was described as ‘The Theatre Beautiful’, and that it was creating an entirely new standard of entertainment.

With the re-opening as the Regent on Broadway in 1 May 1998 that description could still stand.

The 1600 seat theatre was hailed as one of the country’s top six movie theatres in the early 1960′s. It was one of the largest built in New Zealand and became a landmark in the city as well as attracting national attention.

Today, as a 1393 seat venue, the Regent on Broadway can still claim to be one of New Zealands finest performing arts facilities, indeed one of the top four in the country.

Manawatu Gorge (road closed due to slips at present)

Manawatu Gorge

The Manawatu Gorge runs between the Ruahine and Tararua Ranges of the North Island of New Zealand, linking the Manawatu and Hawke’s Bay regions. It lies to the northeast of Palmerston North – its western end is near the small town of Ashhurst, its eastern end is close to the town of Woodville.

A tramping track, the Manawatu Gorge Track, runs parallel to the gorge on the south side through native bush.
