Rex Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The former Gem was built in 1916 as a venue for both vaudeville and the movies. The Rex was vacant for years until THSA member Evan Chase bought the theater and restored it. A theatre organ was installed at that time.

The theater was sold in 1995 and is still operating (as of late 2000).

My family owned the Rex Theatre from 1982 to 1995 and showed Spanish language movies. My Mom & Dad put in new seats and a movie screen and operated during the weekends. I specially loved the old fashioned popcorn machine and the brass railings. Too bad the cable and videos caused my family to sell it. Thanks for bringing up some good memories.
