The Rex Theater photograph listed above(on Related Websites) dates from June 1937. The Rex was operating until at least 1955.

A news story says that this theatre burned down on October 23, 1952 that took 15 out of 17 buildings in an African American district of Leland. The same location had been destroyed once before in a fire in 1912 before it was rebuilt. This theatre may have been rebuilt or salvaged continuing its service.
