The first theater at this site was the Apollo. It opened on Aug 15, 1915 and it closed on June 8, 1932.

The Rex opened at the same location on Feb. 2, 1940 and operated until March 2, 1951 showing mostly B-western movies.

After closing this building served as a site for the Peninsula Youth for Christ and later as the Hampton City Arts Center.

It is now demolished and a bank sits on this property.
