This small movie theater opened in 1968 and featured first run movies. Since it wasn’t owned by any of the big chains, it didn’t play any of the big blockbusters, but it still offered a nice selection of movies. From offbeat horror movies to quirky Hollywood films to hard core porno to to re-releases of "Barbarella" and Shane", they all played at the Cine Regency.
Ironically, the owners of the independent Cine Regency would later create the biggest movie chain in Puerto Rico, Caribbean Cinemas. Interestingly, many of their multiplexes were decorated in the same colors as the Cine Regency.
When Santurce theaters started having financial problems due to a high crime rate in the area, the Cine Regency’s location and lack of parking space made it one of the first casualties.
The Cine Regency closed down in the early-1980’s and became the corporate offices of Caribbean Cinemas.
