Was this also called Regency 2?

Open from 1989-1996?

The Regency 2 was a few doors down the block, listed here as the Temple Theatre, its early name. The Sands became the Regency 1 and the neighboring U.S./Temple became Regency 2.

Cinematour has this one tiny photo of the Regency 1 right after it became the banquet hall, before it was completely remodeled.

Here’s its neighbor, the U.S. (formerly Temple), which became the Regency 2

And here’s the Facebook page for the banquet hall that’s in place of the Regency 1/Sands now.

The zoning info claims it was built in 1962, so the current 1920s look would probably be a newly-added retro look, rather than an original façade that’s been uncovered. It’s still laid out inside with a “lobby” area with two sets of double doors into the main hall.

I worked there a few times under PT when it was Regency 1
Sad that all these theatres all got converted or destroyed
Every one of them on Brand Blvd
