Update. Still owned by the church. I am taking a tour of the inside today and might be able to grab photos of anything interesting.

I live a few blocks from this place. I remember this being a pron movie house when I was a kid. As far as I know, it is still owned by the Restoration Christian Ministries. The google street view image is how it looks today.

I used to live a handful of blocks from this place, in the mid-90s to the early-00s (I was born in ‘93). I remember my mom and I driving past there when I was really small and her pointing at the Rex and saying, “See that? It used to be a theatre.” I have had the ability to recognize former theatres ever since…

Very good uncredited photograph of the REX taken around 1937.

There is a group fighting to have the Rex Theatre declared a landmark and then restored as a theatre. For more information, please go to www.myspace.com/therextheatre .

Thank you

This building is actually for sale at $700,000. There has been some structural changes, but it can be put back in its original state.
If interested call Rob at 253-691-7497.

Hello lostmemory….What a classic the Rex is or (was?) The picture on the link is a wonderful black and white. I see it is listed as closed, but not demolished, do you know if it is still standing? I was in Tacoma in 2003 and unfortunately missed it.
