The Regent Theatre was built by local exhibitor Paul Schlossman, who later built the Michigan Theatre, now the Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts. Like the Michigan, the Regent was designed by Detroit architect C. Howard Crane.

Schlossman’s obituary in Billboard of January 28, 1950, said that he bought three theaters at Muskegon in 1913, and later built the Regent and Michigan Theatres in Muskegon and the Strand Theatre in Muskegon Heights.

This brief biography7 of Schlossman at the Frauenthal Center web site notes that he also built the Rialto and Majestic Theatres in Muskegon, and says that they were also designed by Crane.
