The Regent Theater opened November 10, 1914 with 1,800 seats, and was most likely Rochester’s first deluxe movie house (as opposed to a nickelodeon). It was located in the first block of East Avenue, just around the corner from the Eastman Theatre, and a few blocks up from the Little Theatre. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Frank Walker.
During some cleaning that took place in the 1950’s, a mural was uncovered above the proscenium, and was restored to its original appearance. The Regent Theater disappeared in 1973 and was replaced by (what else?) a parking lot.
