Since the Fall of 2001, the Regent has been under new management. The Bombay Cinema (the nickname of the Indian Film program) has moved to a location in Boston. There is a thriving mix of live performances and classic films now showing here.

The theater is mostly used for live shows now, but occasionally movies are still shown. Sing-a-Long Sound of Music played here several times, and Sing-a-Long Wizard of Oz is coming next month.

The Regent is listed under Arlington MA in the 1927 Film Daily Yearbook. It’s listed as having 800 seats and open 7 days per week.
