The Regent Theatre was opened prior to 1914. It was first modernized in 1934 by John Eberson when the seating capacity was given as 678. In the 1940’s it was operated by the Prudential Theatres chain.
The theatre has now been renovated again, and has 290 stadium seats. Certainly not originally as spectacular as the Bay Shore Theatre (Ward & Glynne’s) vaudeville house. The Bay Shore Theatre was closed already in the 1980’s. The Regent Theatre puttered on into the 1990’s as a porn house.
The new Boulton Center marquee is quite attractive.
