The Rex Theatre was opened in 1936. It could accomodate 525 patrons. It was initially operated by Affiliated Theatres followed by Saenger Amusements then Southern Amusements. The Rex Theatre was still open in 1957, but has since closed and has been demolished for a parking lot.

Lake Charles architect John M. Gabriel drew the plans for alterations to the Rex Theatre in Opelousas in 1951. The house was then being operated by the Southern Amusement Company.
