150 Locke Street,

Having been born and raised in Hamilton, I thought I had a pretty good handle on its cinematic history. So it was a huge surprise to me when I ‘discovered’ the Regent…a mere two minutes' walk from where my father lives.
The Locke Street neighbourhood has been resurgent over the past ten or fifteen years, slowly becoming a real interesting destination as well as a nice place to live. The area has some fascinating history attached to it, so it doesn’t surprise me to find out that once upon a time a cinema was part of it all. I’m going to keep digging until I get more information, but for now, it’s nice to know there’s a piece of Canadian cinematic heritage just around the corner.
Currently the location houses a spa, a ‘hair design’ joint, a complementary health group…as well as apartments.
As an afterthought, I do have some current photos and would be happy to send them out to any and all who are interested.
