A 350-seat movie house called the Rex Theatre opened at Minneapolis on January 19, 1920, according to the January 23 issue of The Film Daily. The street name was not mentioned. The owner of the Rex was H. I. Krohling, and the house opened with Daddy Long Legs, starring Mary Pickford.

The 350 seat Rex Theatre was listed at this address thru 1930. Should this be listed as the Rex Theatre with a AKA Gem Theatre?
