Regent Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Regent Theatre opened September 9, 1966 with Dirk Bogarde in “King and Country”. It often operates as a spillover house for the Village Theatre, which is just a few hundred feet away.

Its lobby was absorbed years ago by adjacent retail space and its remaining auditorium is a relic of the 1970’s.

The Regent Theatre was taken over by Landmark Theatres in 2002 from Mann Theatres.

Robert, I was lucky to run afew of the Westwood houses, the National, Avco, Crest, Odeon (aka: Festival), Plaza and the Regent Theatre. And spent many hours with friends at the Village and Bruin Theatres.

Why doesn’t the Regent use their curtain any more? For 15 minutes before the show started, I just stared at a white screen. I know they have a curtain, so why don’t they use it? It adds to the atmosphere of going to the movies.

Apparently,it has as of Tuesday night. I wonder if the lease ran out and Landmark decided not renew it. In any case,another L.A. single screen gem gone.

Learned something from that lamag article link above: I had no idea Laemmle created the place out of warehouse space back in the 60’s. (Always thought of it as a Mann).

And that’s quite a long list of Westwood Village closures the Regent will get added to: Crest, Festival, Plaza, National, Mann 4, and UA Westwood…
