Regent opened Friday January 8th 1926 and closed in 1957 according to Heritage Burnaby. They appear to have the documentation to back that up.

Regent was opened in 1929 and was operated by Famous Players Theater. Due to dwindling attendance because of television, the theater shuttered its doors in 1958. The structure served as retail space and is now used by Birthright Crisis Center.

My very first movie memory was in this theatre. Don’t recall much of the decor, although I do believe we were sitting in a balcony. Saw the compilation movie When Comedy was King around 1961. Theatre closed shortly afterward is memory serves.
