The Rex Tehatre opened in 1923 with seating listed at 320. The Rex Theatre was one of eight theatres in the downtown section of El Dorado. It was located on S. Washington Street at Pony Street. It had gone from listings by 1941.

The building was a little more distinctive than other theatres opened in this time period in El Dorado and is now a Transmission Shop. Information obtained from the Arkansas Historical Society magazine.

This item from the January 10, 1923, issue of The Film Daily indicates that there was an earlier Rex Theatre in El Dorado:

“El Dorado, Ark.— The Rex, destroyed by fire, is being replaced with a new structure by M. J. Pruniski of Little Rock, and M. S. McCord of El Dorado.”
