ABC Intermountain Theatres opened the Regency Theatre on 19 July 1972. The $750,000 cinema featured 780 seats and a curved Tecnikote XR 171 screen measuring 50 feet wide by 22 feet high. Red curtains from R. L. Grosh & Sons rotated behind the screen instead of gathering at the sides. The booth featured dual Century 35/70mm projectors with Christie CHF xenon consoles and 3,000-watt bulbs. Cineplex Odeon relegated the Regency to dollar theater service on 6 June 1989, then closed it permanently on 25 March 1990. The former theater was later remodeled into a three-story office building.
"Today is the Gala Opening ad of ABC Intermountain's new Wilshire Theatre. Years ahead in concept & design. Beautiful decor and furnishings from plush carpets to acoustically designed walls. Luxurious, high-backed, foam padded opera chairs with plenty of stretch-out room between rows. The largest screen in the Ogden area, with the latest in projection equipment providing pictures of unequaled sharpness and clarity. Year 'round temperature controlled weather for health and comfort. At the entrance car-loading and unloading with acres of convenient, well-lit free parking." Wilshire Theatre, South Ogden, Utah 22 November 1968
