News About This Theater
- Nov 14, 2006 — Rex Theater is aquired by Chalet Theaters
The Rex Theater opened on November 9, 1920 with Pat O'Malley in “Go and Get It”. Located on Court Street originally as a venue for movies, vaudeville and legitimate theater. In the 1980’s, the theater’s balcony was converted into a second auditorium.
After falling into disrepair over the decades, the Rex Theater was purchased by Clay Center resident Jeff Young in 1996 and has been undergoing renovation since then, including a restoration of the marquee and façade, modern sound and projection equipment, a rebuilt concession stand, and a new roof.
The Rex Theater screened movies on the weekends, and is also home to the Clay Center Community Chamber Orchestra. It also hosts other live performances when not showing movies. Movies ceased in 2013. Renovations began in February 2018 and it reopened in July 2018.
