Regent Theatre

The Regent Theatre showed motion pictures from 1914 when it was built by the Ansonia Amusement Company. It was listed in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915 as the Argus Theatre, which could have been its opening name. By 1926 the Regent Theatre was operated by the Yost Theater Circuit.

The Regent Theatre operated until at least 1956, and perhaps later than that.
