Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Rexy Theatre opened in 1928, located on South Street not far from 5th Street. This 2,000-plus seat theater was designed by the firm of Hodgens & Hill. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management and listed as (Closed), the same in 1943. The Rexy Theatre later reopened and was finally closed in 1975 and demolished not long after. A pizza restaurant and apartments stands on the site today.

I have seen a photo of the theatre’s interior. It was an ATMOSPHERIC design. As far as I know, this theatre was closed most of the time. It was one of those cases where there were too many seats for the neighborhood.
