The Rex Theatre was owned by the same group that owned the Dome Theater. Of interest is the fact that the Warner people had an interest in the Rex as well as the Dome.

Thanks to a 1916 Vindicator promotion I was able to locate the address for this theatre. It was 135 West Federal Street.

Afterthought:

For a city the size of Youngstown it had a larger number of theaters than I’ve been able to place here on Cinema Treasures. By reviewing the theater pages of The Vindicator over the years since it’s founding in 1869, you’d see what I mean.Some were live houses, many were movie houses, and some were both, and we thank the owners of this site for allowing us to preserve our city’s theater history.

In December 1911 Harry Warner and David Robins (Dan’s brother) built the Rex Theatre at 135 W. Federal Youngstown and used films left over from the Warner’s failed distribution business.
