The Regency Center

Venue Overview


Built in 1909, The Regency Center is considered the finest example of Scottish Rite temple architecture in the country, featuring Gothic, neoclassic, and Beaux-Arts styles. The building has housed a Masonic Temple, a dance studio, the Polish Arts Foundation, and a movie theater. Recently restored to its original splendor, this landmark offers three levels of unique gathering space.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by an architectural icon, crafted from white Caen stone. The interior features three distinct levels of event space, each boasting unique structural characteristics and an array of accompanying rooms. Each individual room possesses its own unique characteristics, and may be used separately or in combination.
