An ad listing theaters showing The March of Time that appeared in the January 10, 1938, issue of Life included the Rex Theatre in Prichard.

If Google Maps is correct, Prichard no longer has any two-digit addresses. The modern address of the Rex Theatre’s site would probably have three digits: maybe the new number would have been 119, but maybe not. None of the ruins or vacant lots in the 100 block of East Man Street as shown in the November, 2007, Google Street View give any indication of having once housed a theater.

It must have been across the street from Lacey’s Tax Services, as the odd numbers are on the north side of Main Street (Lacey’s building has 112 on it, but if the number is properly placed the offices probably occupy former storefronts from 108 to 114.) The theater must have been on part of the parking lot that has all the school buses on it.
