1961 article on razing from the Ironwood Daily Globe

The Rex Theater was opened on November 4, 1916 with Clara Kimball Young in “The Common Law”. It was part of the Ironwood Amusement Corporation in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The company also owned the Ironwood Theatre and the Ironwood Drive-In in Ironwood as well as the Range Theatre in Hurley, Wisconsin. The Rex Theater was closed on September 8, 1957 with Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments”. It was eventually sold and was demolished in March/April 1961. The site became a parking lot.
