The Rosewin Theater was opened by “Mac” McHenry in 1922 at Jefferson Avenue and Tyler Street in Dallas' Oak Cliff section. It replaced the Bluebird Theater which was located around the corner on Tyler Street.
In 1924 the Rosewin Theater was enlarged to 650 seats and again in 1925 to 1,000 seats. It was reported to be the first theater to have a “cry room”. It was later operated by Robb & Rowley Theaters.
“The Little Minister”, starring Alice Calhoun, was the first feature to open the Rosewin. The theater was renamed the Rex and featured adult films in its last years. It was closed in the early-1970’s and later demolished.
