Scott Neff, Your observation about the Regency being an Eastern Federal Theatre is quite right. It opened as a 6 screen house. Their choice of film handling equipment was the root of their presentation problems. They had similar issues in Tallahassee at the Varcity, and Miracle and in Jacksonville at the Cedar Hills, Royal Palm and their two Drive-In operations, the Midway and Fox. Their 1970’s vintage Theatres, used Cinemeccanica equipment which were found to be more reliable, than their custom built film handling systems that went into their twinning operations and new builds after the late 1970’s.

Looks like this was built by Eastern Federal Theatres. Unless there was a local chain in FL called Regency, I assume Regency was just the name of the theatre?
