Was lucky enough to watch “Red State” here. A nifty little bar adjoins the lobby.

Across the street was the Rex Theatre at 51 South Main Street which I’ve submitted several times to New Theatres here but have been unable to get it listed. For years it’s been a Sherwin-Williams paint store. I’ll post an original photo once the listing is accepted.

aint store

The Rex Theatre is listed as the Rialto Theatre in “Nearby Theaters” in the right hand column. The address is 31 N. Main Street, the same as the Sherwin-Williams paint store today. It was renamed the Rialto in 1936. You can add your photo to that page/link below.
