I’m pretty sure that it was the Rex…that the Florida was two blocks north of…with the Saenger being further south a bit on the same side of the street.

If I remember right the Florida theatre was about 200' from the Rex and the Saenger being halfway down Palafox. All 3 theatres were on the left side of the st. walking from the Hotel heading to the Auditorium at the end.
