The New Rose Theatre launched with Gloria Swanson in “The Humming Bird" on March 14, 1924. Wall & Phillips had purchased the former Rose / American/ Regent Theatre relaunching with this new-build theater here. The Regent was equipped with sound on October 23, 1929. In 1944, it closed to tear out the old balcony and increase seating capacity by 125. In 1955, it converted to widescreen to play CinemaScope features.
