Previously operated by: United Detroit Theaters
Firms: Stratton & Von Schneider
Previous Names: Regent Theater
One of Detroit’s larger neighborhood houses, early claims by its original owners that the Regent Theater sat over 3,600 seem a bit exaggerated. It most likely sat closer to half that amount.
Opened September 17, 1916 as a movie theater. The Regent Theater was designed by the firm of Stratton & Von Schneider.
It was later operated by United Detroit Theaters, and remodeled in 1953. It closed six years later.
In 1961, the theater was rechristened the Center Theater and opened with "One-Eyed Jacks".
It was modernized a decade later, but closed once more, for good, in 1974 and razed the next year.
