Located at King Street and Victoria Street, this beautiful theatre opened on October 16th, 1919 with Thomas Meighan in “The Prince Cap”. It originally seated 1,100 people. It was built by Famous Players and later the seating capacity was reduced to 878.
It was once known as the “handsomest structure of its kind between Toronto and Montreal”.
Sadly, it stopped showing movies by October 1989 and was unused for several years until in 2000, the owner of the site petitioned the city to destroy the building. Instead, they declared a historical structure and created the Regent Theatre Renewal Project. There are plans to restore the Regent and use it as a performing arts centre.
