Rex Theatre ... Pensacola Florida .. 1986

Rex Theatre opened November 1937, the building was originally a furniture store. The theatre was closed in 1977. It briefly reopened as a cinema drafthouse in the 1980’s. Once the theatre closed the building went through several renovations and in 2012 was purchased by the Harvest Church who renovated the building and moved in April 17, 2015.

Can somebody please put up some information about the Pen and Florida theatres in Pensacola. Being stationed there in 1959-60, 1964-1965 and then again in the 80’s I visited these theatres many times besides the Saenger.

The theater recently underwent an extensive restoration and I am happy to say it has now reopened as of April 17, 2015. Great to see yet another part of downtown Pensacola be brought back to life.
