The Regent closed in 1974, at that time the theatre was called the New Center, the same name on the marquee. The Regent sign Marquee was taken down in the late 50''s. The only movie theatre marquee''s remaining in the downtown area, are the Fox, State, Madison and the Fine Arts. The Regent/New Center building was demolished in the early 90''s, vacant lot now.

Was watching a movie called THE MAN atarring Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy that was filmed in the Detroit downtown area. If you watch the background closely, they drive past the Regent Theater, and the building is right there in the movie though it was closed.

One of Detroit's larger neighborhood houses, early claims by its original owners that the Regent sat over 3600 seem a bit exaggerated. It most likely sat closer to half that amount. Built for legitimate theater, it later served as a vaudeville venue. The Regent was designed by the firm of Stratton & Von Schneider. It was later operated by United Detroit Theaters, and remodeled in 1953.

It closed six years later. In 1961, the theater was rechristened the Center and opened with One-Eyed Jacks. It was modernized a decade later, but closed once more, for good, in 1974 and razed the next year. Cinema Treasures Link.
