Located near Mott Street, this theatre was showing films from at least 1930, possibly opening in the late-1920’s.

By 1941 it had gone from listings.

This is listed in the 1937 Film Daily Yearbook as the closed Roxy.

My mistake, it is listed as the Rexy.

In 1936 The Rexy became the home of The Bowery Tabernacle.

Here is a 1929 photo of it as the Houston.

Boxoffice of January 19, 1935 carried this in its “Theatre Notes” column: “The Rexy, Houston Street, is dark.”

For many years this space was used by the Volunteers of America, which included an auditorium for meetings, the original gathering place for their Santa Clauses heading out throughout the city similar to Salvation Army, and even a retail store for used items. It was demolished to make room for an apartment building (blocked by bus in photo), with entrance on Mott Street.
