Regency Cinemas

The Regency Cinema opened in San Rafael on October 21, 1983. To this day it is still one of the best places to see movies in Marin County. Screen #1 is in a large auditorium, and is wide enough for 70MM movies. Theaters #2, #5, and #6 are quite large and comfortable also. Theaters #3 and #4 are smaller. For its first six years of operation, it was the only place to catch a daily matinee in Marin, and was always playing to sellout crowds.

In 2001 it was nicely refurbished by Century Theatres, and was recently sold to Cinemark. For the most part they now play more “upscale” movies and are not quite as busy as they used to be.
