This theater has been converted to an antiques auction house, but some thought was given to preservation, at last check, all the old theater seating is still intact under a raised floor, balcony and screen still and curtain rigging is still intact as well. A grand old theater that sadly needs to be restored to its past glory.

I just moved to Franklin. This theater is a sad little building, in a pretty sad downtown. The whole area is pretty run down. The Regal is definately preserved by neglect, as evidenced by the rusty weathered marquee. The bright side however is the entire area was designated an historic district so there are people working to spruce things up a bit. I moved up here to escape high rents, and I’m sure other people did too… but I figure if this town didn’t take off in the now passing real estate boom, it never will.

Graphic Theatres of Boston ran the Regal as of 1942, according to a listing in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac. Graphic also ran the Capitol and the Pastime theaters in Franklin at that time.
