Broadway Theatre

Opened on January 1, 1930 with Belle Baker in “Song of Love”. It was operated by Mr. Harry Bercovich. This was Regina’s first "all talkie" theatre. It was designed in a Spanish Renaissance/Atmospheric style with windows and balconies on the side walls of the 1,200-seat auditorium.

The Broadway Theatre was closed on February 8, 1932 due to the depression and remained closed until Mr. Bercovich reopened it in 1941. He continued to operate the theatre until he retired in 1954. It was then sold to the Famous Players Chain in 1969. Famous Players operated the Broadway Theatre until it closed permanently on October 29, 1981 with Burt Reynolds in “Paternity”

It has since been demolished and in 2009,and the site is a parking lot.

Here’s an ad from the October 29, 1981 edition of the Regina Leader-Post, the day that the Broadway closed with a last showing of the Burt Reynolds movie “Paternity”.
