News About This Theater
Built in 1947 with a balcony, by the early-1990’s, seating capacity of the Cine Rex was 417 seats. When I saw a movie there in 1997, I counted 399 seats. Main floor seating consisted of 16 rows of 10 seats, an aisle, then 10 more seats.
The lobby and auditorium were ornate. You entered the auditorium where the screen is. The curved screen appeared to be 35 to 45 feet wide. A red curtain rose & lowered.
With decreased attendence at single screen movie theatres, the Cine Rex closed in 2006 and by 2007, permission had been granted for demolition. Fortunately, plans changed, and the cinema will be turned into a multi-purpose show venue.
