The Regent Square Theater, the largest nonprofit arthouse cinema in Western Pennsylvania, is one of the last remaining single-screen theaters in the nation, screening international, independent, documentary and classic films. It was built in 1938, and since then it has served the Edgewood and Regent Square community as a true neighborhood theater. In 1999, Pittsburgh Filmmakers purchased the theater, and since that time it has been the largest exhibition facility for the organization.
The theater hosts upwards of 600 screenings per year, drawing audiences to:
- regular 7-days-a-week programming,
- a classic film series on Sunday evenings,
- the Three Rivers Film Festival in November,
- and privately hosted events
Showtimes are available through their website.
Pittsburgh Filmmakers is one of the oldest and largest media arts centers in the U.S. It is a 35-year-old non-profit institution that began as a filmmaking-equipment access cooperative, providing local artists with full access to editing suites, darkrooms, vast equipment cache, soundstage, etc., and has grown to also include an accredited school, three theaters, and the area’s largest annual film event, the Three Rivers Film Festival.
A note from Pittsburgh Filmmakers: “We here at Filmmakers like being part of the Regent Square neighborhood, and we are grateful for all the community support that we have received over the years. Keep an eye out for upcoming improvements and renovations to the theater, including upgrades to equipment and audience experience.”
