This theater opened in 1914 as the Royal Theater. In 1921 it was re-vamped to provide facilities for vaudeville shows and was re-named Regent Theater and it started showing silent movies from the mid-1920’s. Fox took over the building in 1955, re-named it the Fox Theater and cut away the proscenioum opening to install a Cinemascope screen. It closed in 1999 showing Ron Howard’s film “EDtv”.
