The Rex Theatre opened in 1924 on Main Street. It was the first theater in the Bloomer Amusement Company (later known as BAC) chain wired for sound.

The Rex Theatre closed in 1953 and was demolished in 1982. A plaque in the lobby of the now-shuttered BAC Quad in Belleville commemorated the Rex Theatre.

Theatre located at 1317 W. Main. An empty lot occupies the site today.

From local newspapers, etc. I live in St. Louis, just a stone’s throw from Belleville (or vice versa).
