Map marker is too far south, must have been somewhere in the center of town, not down by the grain elevator. Nearly the entire downtown had been demolished by 2012, so I’m sure this is gone.

Don’t know if it was the Rex, but the 1914 Sanborn map shows a theater in the ground floor of a lodge hall in the third building south of Marion on the east side. For streetview purposes, that would be south of that lonely metal shed. Marion east of Main is just a decaying strip of pavement petering out to dirt. The entire block on both sides was demolished a long time ago, probably due to flooding. From just south of Marion to about 2 blocks further north was downtown. There is one building left, along with a few undistinguished modern buildings.
