Regent Theatre

Built in 1919 the Regent Theatre ended up owned by Kallet Theatres who operated it as a second run often double feature house.

The Regent Theatre was sold to Syracuse University in 1958 and thereafter used for a time by the university as repertory/revival/film festival venue. In addition to 35mm the university added 16mm carbon arc projectors to aid in the presentation of repertory films.

The Regent Theatre was demolished in 1980 and the John D. Archibold Theatre was built on the site.

In 1965 the University did extensive renovations to allow the Regent to be used as a stage and performing arts venue in addition to film presentations. Slowly over time the use of the Regent for film subsided.
