Previous Names: Rex Theatre, New Rex Theatre
Opened as the Rex Theatre in 1914, in one of Ottawa’s blue-collar neighbourhoods west of downtown, this theatre had the unusual distinction of being located on a residential side street.
Originally a small 300-seat nickelodeon, in 1927 it was renamed Rexy Theatre and completely remodelled into an atmospheric theatre. Seating was then expanded to 750 and a new front entrance was added on the main Somerset Street West, through the purchase of a retail space in an adjacent building.
It catered to the neighbourhood with B-movies and kids' serials until TV took its toll. The Rexy Theatre closed in 1954 and was demolished in 1956.
