Opened: 1966.

The building was constructed in the 40s as retail space but had later been used as a warehouse before the Laemmle circuit converted it into a theatre. The Regent was operated for years by Mann after Laemmle lost their lease on the building in the 70s. It was acquired in 2002 by Landmark Theatres, who did a general refurbishing.

Seating: 400

Screen size: 35'

Status:  It's doomed. Closing date is unknown. Current booking policy is first run or moveover mainstream product. Lots of Disney, etc.

More information: See the Regent page on Cinema Treasures. Several photos are on Cinema Tour.
