News from Billings in the The August 29, 1914 issue of Moving Picture World:

“Woods & Snidow have sold the Broadway theater at Billings, Mont., to E. C. O'Keefe, manager of the Luna theater in Billings, and V. D. Caldwell of the American Bank and Trust Company of that city. Formal opening under the new management was fixed for the last of August, many changes to be made in the house in the interval. After the reopening the theater will be known as the Regent and the policy will be the ultra-features at prices slightly higher than the average admission in Billings has been. O'Keefe will continue to manage the Luna.”

This opened on December 24th, 1911 as the Acme theater, which was the only fireproof theatre in the state as the ad claims. Ad in photo section. Acme theatre openingAcme theatre opening · Sun, Dec 24, 1911 – 5 · The Billings Gazette (Billings, Montana) ·

From 1917 a postcard view of 28th Street along with a view of the Regent Theater marquee in Billings. The feature being screened is the rare, first version of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms starring Mary Pickford.

My 1967 FDY lists these drive-ins in Billings: City-Vu, Billings Motor-Vu and Sage.
