Regent Theatre Doors Open Oshawa

Regent Theatre

The Regent Theatre’s façade, built in 1919 for Famous Players theatres, has Georgian architectural lines. One of the town’s few remaining examples of this classically inspired style, the building reopened in 2010 as a lecture theatre for the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, as well as for community and cultural events. Enjoy classic movie passes and popcorn giveaways.
