The Rex Theatre opened in 1938. It closed for the first time on June 8, 1958. It’s last show was “Slaughter On 10th Avenue”. It reopened the day after the Palace closed, as a replacement for the Palace, on Sept. 24, 1959, with a double feature of “Thunder Road” and “God’s Little Acre”. It closed permanently a year later, on Oct. 30, 1960, with a double feature of “The Last Blitzkrieg” and “Gunman from Laredo”.
