The Regent in Christchurch has done it again for the fourth year running. Having had the biggest attendance in the UK and Ireland in 2015, 2016 and 2017 for the cinema screenings of the annual Andre Rieu Maastricht Concert, the promoters of the concert, Piece of Magic, have just informed the management of the Regent in Christchurch that they have scored No 1 cinema in the UK and Ireland for the fourth year running for the Andre Rieu Maastricht concert screenings in 2018.

Out of over 500 cinemas in the UK and Ireland screening, the 2018 Andre Rieu Maastricht Concert on Saturday 28 July 7pm and Sunday 29 July 3pm and Friday 18 August 2pm and 7pm, the Regent has retained its title this year. Nearly 1,200 (1,184 actual) patrons attended the four screenings.

Regent Centre general manager, Felicity Porter, who books in the special event cinema and live satellite broadcasts at the Centre said, “I am absolutely thrilled that all of our hard work in presenting the very best arts events from around the world on screen at the Regent has been such a success. All of our volunteers and staff at the Regent can share in this success and I would like to thank our loyal audience in Christchurch for all of their support in 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. I am determined to ensure that the Regent is still the No 1 Andre Rieu cinema in UK and Ireland for 2019!”

Known to millions as ‘The King of Waltz’, Andre Rieu is one of the world’s most popular music artists. His annual Maastricht concert is one of the most eagerly anticipated cinema events of the year, setting new box office records in several countries every year.

Set against the stunning medieval backdrop of the town square in his Dutch hometown, the Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, along with his world-famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and special guests.

Andre Rieu’s New Year’s Concert 2019 from Sydney (PG) is already on sale at the Regent for Saturday 5 January and Sunday 6 January 2019. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
