This is a modern day view of SE Dewey & Frank Phillips Blvd. The former Yale (AKA-Rex) Theatre was inside the red brick bldg on the left.

The book Washington County by Michelle M. Martin says that the Rex Theatre was built in 1915 and originally called the Yale.

There’s a small photo of the facade of the Yale Theatre in an ad for a popcorn machine that was published in the May, 1917, issue of Photoplay (result 4 of 5 for Yale– page 155.) There’s a bit of Art Nouveau decoration on the building.
