An article about the Regent appeared in The Moving Picture World of August 28, 1915. The target date for the opening of the house, then under construction, was September 15.

I remember The Regent well. I went weekly from 1966 thru to the end in 1972. Very classy as Hugger1 says. However, the photo above shows the corner of Sparks and Kent, and as your comments say, the Regent was for sure a the corner of Bank Street and the Sparks Street Mall. The Mall closing to vehicle traffic in the summer of 1966, the year I arrived from Alexandria ( with one theatre ) to Ottawa which had about 8 or 9 at least. A great time for movies and the theatres were always filled. Ah, memories.

The entry for Morton James Coulson in the 1956 American Architects Directory lists a 1950 remodeling of the Regent Theatre in Ottawa, Canada, among his principal works.

One of the classiest places around in it’s day, along with the Capital.
