The Regent Theatre was originally located at Atlantic and Lincoln Avenues. In 1921, Bill Hunt purchased and moved the wood structure to Garfield Avenue and Boardwalk. In 1945, the Regent was redesigned (in concrete) by architect William Harold Lee. Closed in 1977, at which time it became a retail mall.

During its heyday in the 1930s, the Regent Theatre operated only during the summmer season, while the Casino & Blaker Theatres operated year round.
