The Regent

The Regent A live entertainment venue, bar and restaurant in Downtown LA Originally opened in 1914 as The National. Three years later, the name was changed to The Regent, as we still know it today.
(15)

After decades as a grindhouse and adult movie venue, the theater was closed in 2000, only to lay dormant for several years. Six years later, developer Tom Gilmore acquired the property, using it as an occasional art and performance space for the monthly Thursday night Downtown Art Walk. Known for its sloped floor, proscenium archway and gothic-inspired ceiling, The Regent is a true relic and the last remaining historic movie theater on Downtown LA’s Main Street. Music promoter Mitchell Frank, along with Artist and Recreation, LLC, and Knitting Factory Entertainment Inc., took over the lease in 2012 and has restored the theatre to its former glory. Improvements include an update on all interiors, second story mezzanine for killer viewing as well as a pizzeria (Prufrock Pizzeria) and bar (The Love Song). Upon completion fall of 2014, The Regent Theater will play host to concerts, themed dance nights, theater performances, movie screenings, special events, parties and festivals.

Heartbroken to hear the story about our longtime bartender here and The Echo. Please share, donate, pray, send good vibes 🙏

Our hearts are with Melanie & Eric 💛

It is with a heavy heart we share a tragic story. Many of you may know or recognize Eric Kehler as your favorite bartender at The Echo and The Regent for the past several years.

Eric and his wife Melanie, suffered a complete loss Monday evening due to a house fire. They've lost both their fur babies as well as both suffered major injuries with Melanie still at the hospital.

If you've ever ordered a drink at a show, please consider donating 💕 Our bartenders and staff have been out of work since March and was already struggling to begin with. Now with this tragedy, your hope and support means everything.

If you have the means to donate, please visit their GoFundMe page at https://gf.me/u/y4r53f and also share the post as many times.

Keeping Eric & Melanie in our thoughts ❤️

Independent venues were the first to close, and they’ll be the last to reopen. There is a lot of work that goes into putting on a killer show and the people and venues that make that possible are struggling like everyone else.

If you go to SaveOurStages.com It'll take ya 30 seconds to ask Congress to provide @nivassoc with critical funding so that our independent venues can survive this pandemic and we can keep rawking!

Each day is wildly different from the last. It’s hard to keep up with the changing protocols, closures and cancellations —and it’s even more difficult to wrap our heads around how quickly the COVID-19 is spreading, affecting lives, and what can be done.

We put together a guide with several resources to help support artists & music community during this time.

Are we still on for she past away sept 16? I’m assuming no and that I should contact space land for a refund?
Well having been stay at home with full pay for a month I was finally laid off and qualified for unemployment. Now I am being processed for 2 different jobs. Interviewed already and background check being done. Only have to go back last 7 years to check on me then re-establish my security clearance. Probably be back in the workforce within 2 weeks. While out I had defibrillator installed in chest as doctor said better to play safe as I may never need it but good to have. Feeling good but extremely bored with all this stay at home.
How does one get a refund on a postponed event? I paid cash at the pizzeria. Please answer. No one else will.
When am I getting my refund for the cancelled Carnifex/3TEETH concert on April 17th?
How do I get my refund for cancelled shows?
What is the status of the Eric Nam shows, please?
Hello! I've been trying to contact the Regent for a few days via phone and email about a lost item at a concert, and I cannot get a hold of a single person. Please DM me.

The Regent please advise on refund for DP 2/17 tickets due to start time change.
