Rex Theatre  Town Square, Altus, OK...1936.

Let’s tell it as it was, vintage photographs uncover the fact that the Rex Theatre was nothing more than a relic leftover from the nickelodeon era that lasted longer than most. It was still open in 1935.

There was little in the way of decoration in this type of uitilarian cinema, and patrons expected only a movie for a cheap admission price.

Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.

Here is the former Rex Theatre today (photo left). The building top was made level in the 1960s when a modern sheet metal facade was added, but has since been removed.
