In the 1928 Goldsboro city directory, 319 S. James is listed as the location of the Rex Auditorium Theatre, a moving picture house for black patrons, operated by J. K. Darden. This house was apparently the successor to the Rex Theatre on W. Chestnut Street, which was not listed in the 1928 directory.

If the address listed above is correct then the James Theater has been demolished. However, there is a building on the southwest corner of South James and West Spruce Streets (301 South James?) that looks like it could have been a movie theater at one time.

The University of North Carolina’s web site about theaters, “Going to the Show,” lists the James Theatre as having been an African-American house.
