There is an old bank at the address mentioned above. I asked they lady at the information booth in the City Hall building, and she said the theater was at the site that is now a Silversmith shop. That would put it at 205 E Main Street.

The Rex theater had to have been opened before 1930. There is an ad here from the Feb. 9, 1917 Brenham Daily Banner. https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth489672/m1/4/
