The Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles first opened its doors in 1914 as The National. Three years later, the name changed to The Regent Theater. The theater closed in 2006 and reopened six years later under the marquee of Tom Gilmore. After serving as mainly an art space, music promoter Mitchell Frank and the Knitting Factory Entertainment Inc. took over the lease in 2012. Under their management, the theater was restored to its original look, which included gothic-inspired ceilings and archways. The venue now hosts a variety of events like concerts, festivals, movie screenings, theater performances and more, and performers such as Chris Murray, Noname, Kero Kero Bonito and Fever333 have performed here.
