Regent Theatre, Auckland – Two research sessions

The team gained access for two research sessions within the long abandoned, dark and powerless, Regent Theatre and Auckland City central, to follow up on our recent exploratory session, with more indepth exploration, documentation and a few communication attempts, before it is demolished to make way for  major development plans. Quite a lot of demolition has been done since our last visit a few weeks back, so we were lucky to get in when we did, before it is all gone. For the second session, more lighting was set up to allow for filming and photography. We were also joined by Joshua and Hinemoa from Hamilton’s Midnight Paranormal for this visit.

Paranormal Investigator and Founder of Haunted Auckland. I have been a mad researcher of everything Paranormal, Extraterrestrial and Crypto-zoological, since early childhood. When not creating electronic music, watching Horror movies and documentaries, archiving and documenting NZ’s diverse and eclectic music history, I have spent countless hours investigating and furthering my research out in the field, either as part of a group or solo, since the early 80′s. I’ve spent much time in opportunistic investigations whilst travelling around New Zealand and Internationally.

    Wow, so good to see inside, you were lucky to get in there before it’s gone forever :( It may already be gone by now?

  2. Well, seeing that interior sure brings back memories of seeing movies there in the early to mid 1980s.
