OLD VINTAGE DETROIT MOVIE THEATER REGENT 1950 photo picture print photography for sale. This sepia toned old vintage Detroit movie REGENT THEATER photograph print is made from a professionally restored 1950 original negative/photo. THE DETROIT REGENT THEATER was located at 7314 Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit. It was built in 1916 by Stratton and VonSchneider and seated 3,600 patrons. At the time of its opening, it cleamed to be the largest theater in the world, though some sources say the seating capacity was probably about half of that. In any event, this huge nieghborhood movie house opened as a vaudeville theater. It was remodeled in 1953 and reopened the same year, but closed again in 1959. It was remodeled a few times after that and finally closed for good in 9174. This is a wonderful 1950 vintage REGENT THEATER photo, with a double feature on the marquee---one feature was 'The Harbor of Missing Men.' This is a wonderful 1950 image of the days when hundreds of neighborhood theaters bloomed in big cities and small towns across the USA.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
