I remember seeing the first James Bond movies at the T&D. The best french fries and BBQ sauce were available at the corner restaurant.
Pictures of the T&D and many other buildings in downtown Oakland are available for viewing at in the Downtown Merchants collection at the history room of the Oakland Public Library.

For those of us who grew up in downtown Oakland in the fifties and sixties, the Rex offered a bargain Saturday matinee. We could enjoy 3 sci-fi or horror movies for only a quarter. We didn’t notice any problems with the audience or the building.
