226 E. Main is currently a law office.

If it’s closed and not demolished, I think so. I didn’t see any other lawyers in that building, so he may have the whole thing.

I saw some parade photos from last year going down the 100 block of E. Main towards the 200 block, but the photographer was on the even side of the street, so all the photos showed odd street numbers.

As I remember, it didn’t last too long. Opened in about 1950 with Bing Crosby in “Ichabod and Mr. Toad.” I never saw a movie there, and many people I knew complained about the size and the ceiling being low.

This theater was first known as the REX Theater. It was operated by a retired Pharmacist, Mr. Harmon Kinison, prior to it becoming the Roxy theater. I have attached a photograph of the REX THEATER For you perusal as well as the obituary for Mr. Kinison. I am not sure that the building someone else posted is the address that the Roxy and Rex Theaters were located, but can verify that information and get back on that validity as well.
