“The Rex Picture Theatre” Adelaide.

Rex Picture Theatre
Here’s a photo of the Rex Picture Theatre in Rundle Street which closed and was demolished in 1961 to make way for extensions to the Cox-Foys Building.
The Rex apparently replaced an earlier picture theatre called ‘The Pav’ or the Pavillion which was the first theatre in South Australia to show pictures continuously, from 11am until 11pm.
This is going back a bit but does anyone have any memories of the Rex?
