Rex Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

After viewing historic exterior/interior photographs of Elk City’s Rex Theater, judging from the styling it would be a safe guess to say that this movie house originally opened as a nickelodeon.

Vintage photographs also reveal that this structure was obviously purpose built to be a cinema. The Rex Theater is still listed as operating in the 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook
