The Rex Theater opened in 1920 on Court Street originally as a venue for movies, vaudeville and legitimate theater. In the 1980’s, the theater’s balcony was converted into a second auditorium.
After falling into disrepair over the decades, the Rex Theater was purchased by Clay Center resident Jeff Young in 1996 and has been undergoing renovation since then, including a restoration of the marquee and facade, modern sound and projection equipment, a rebuilt concession stand, and a new roof.
The Rex Theater screened movies on the weekends, and is also home to the Clay Center Community Chamber Orchestra. It also hosts other live performances when not showing movies. Movies ceased in 2013. Renovations began in February 2018 with a reopening planned by the Summer of 2018.
