Former Regal Theater
shines in city’s West End
The former Regal Theater is thought to have been built around 1908.
In the 40’s and 50’s it screened cartoons & feature films, while hosting
jazz musicians late into the evening. It closed in 1996, and by 2002, it
was a featured property in CityBeat’s Blight of the Week. The Hamilton County Landbank acquired the property in April 2013, and began
stabilization work in October 2013. The Landbank has issued a public
“Request for Redevelopment Proposals,” in an effort to find qualified
developer(s) for its preservation and redevelopment into a vital part of
the West End business district.
