A “75 Years Ago” feature in the February 14, 2012, issue of The Oneida Daily Dispatch said that Kallet Theatres was planning to erect a new, $175,000 theater on Main Street, and that the ten-year-old Regent Theatre at 212 Main Street would be leased to a Dexter Robbins, who intended to convert it into a bowling alley.

75 years before 2012 would give an opening year of 1927 for the Regent, and a publication year of 1937 for the original newspaper article cited. The new theater being planned was the Kallet, now Kallet Civic Center, which opened in 1938.

Another “75 Years Ago” published a few weeks earlier on January 10 cited a 1937 article saying that Kallet Theatres planned to either remodel the Madison Theatre, reopen the Regent, or build a new house.

The address 212 Main means the site of the Regent was the parking lot just north of two old brick commercial buildings that survive on the west side of Main Street at the end of the block south of Lenox Avenue (NY 365 A).
