Opened as the Rosetta Theatre on February 16, 1926 with Tom Mix in “The Yankee Senor”. It was operated by Wometco Enterprises. It was located on NE 2nd Avenue just south of 79th Street, in the area known as Little River.
In the latter days of its existance it operated as an adult movie house named 2nd Avenue Arts Theatre from February 17, 1971 and from April 19, 1974 it became the Rex Art Theatre. The overall looks of the marquee and theatre’s main entrance suggested it was a classic movie house at one time.
