Re-opening on Oct. 27, with a weekend of horror films for all ages, and some with a local angle!

The Regent Square is (hopefully) temporarily closed right now (Aug 2017) due to technical and financial issues. Here’s an article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on the topic:

The “Operated By” (chain) should be Pittsburgh Filmmakers.

This Theatre is on The Swissvale border in the Regent Square neighborhood. It Does Not have ANYTHING (Nor was it named after the “Regent” in East Liberty. When I lived in Swissvale I used to walk to the place often. The last movie a saw here was “The Crow” with Brandon Lee.

71 Dude, that was a good article by Ed Blank. Thanks for posting it. I went to the Regent Square the other night to see “Animal KIngdom” and I’m gonna return next week to see the “Mesrine” series.

I encourage all film fans to support the Regent Square. They show movies that you just can’t see elsewhere.

The Three Rivers Film Festival is going on here right now. I encourage everyone to attend.

“Invitations to openings and special events” should have been right underneath “First Class mailing….” (Yes, I did “cut-and-paste” from the PGH Film Makers' Site.

And yes, Cinema Treasures, please update the correct link above

This theatre is going on hiatus until after Thanksgiving. They will then be showing MY KID COULD PAINT THAT. I enjoy the films shown here, at the Manor, and the Squirrel Hill.
