Oklahoma City based Mort Lowenstein operated this house, and the Yale.
Lowenstein Theatres built in Oklahoma City the Colonial (AKA-Majestic), Blue Moon, Gem, Joy, and Paris Art.
In Tulsa Lowenstein owned the Downtown, Midtown, and Uptown.

This house had been renamed the Regent Theatre by 1919, when the November 2 issue of the Wichita Eagle reported that “[t]he Regent theater building, 117 North Market street, was badly damaged by fire yesterday.”

The Regent had only reopened on September 1, 1919, after an extensive remodeling and redecorating job which had kept the house closed for the entire month of August.
