It was still the Round-Up Theatre in 1964 and 1970, the dates of the two photos I uploaded. It had become the Round-Up in 1947 when Ted Gamble took it over. With a Westerns only policy and Western themed interior. I have found no record of it returning to the Rex Theatre name.

I found those two on a Facebook page called Forgotten Oregon. I must have found 10-15 pics of various theatres, and I wasn’t even ¼ of the way through their photos section. I’ve already created 4 new CT pages for missing theatres based on what I’ve found. Still need to make one for the Parkrose when I have time.

Below is a link to the new page for the Music Box Theatre. It includes a pdf link that must be copied & pasted to access and open, that has the full history of the building from the Historic Resource Inventory of Portland. Also below is a PDX History link that has photos of most Portland theatres.

The Overview should be credited to Joe Vogel. Below is the Historic Resource Inventory link/PDF which has the full history of the Broadhill Building/Music Box Theatre. Copy and paste is the only way to access the link.

DavidZornig commented about Fox Theatre on Mar 31, 2017 at 9:46 pm

I’ve submitted a CT page for the Music Box Theatre next door to the Fox, including Joe Vogel’s information above. As well as additional info I found in a PDF, which I will add with photos once the page is up. For the record it was built in 1924 as the Broadhill Building, and remodeled in 1959 into the Music Box.
