The Regent Theatre in downtown Los Angeles was listed in 1926 with a seating capacity for 700. It is one of the last theaters located on South Main Street (the other one is the Linda Lea Theatre).
In its day, S. Main Street had about 20 theaters that were small to medium sized, not like the big theatres along S. Broadway, two blocks away. The theaters ranged from the 248-seat Novelty Theatre to the 2,100-seat Hippodrome Theatre.
The last of the large theaters to leave was the 1,500-seat California Theatre. The Regent Theatre closed late in 2000 after running its last years as an adult movie house.
In September 2008, it was reopened as a live performance venue.
