Thanks for checking out the online home of the REX Theatre. We’re excited you’re here! On this site, you’ll find some back-story about the REX, some factoids about its current owners and decision makers, and a layout of how we plan to enliven Pensacola’s downtown community. Let us know if you have any questions!
The REX Theatre, built in 1910, is a historic building located in downtown Pensacola, Fla. The REX was closed for more than 20 years and was in need of extensive repair and renovation when Harvest Outreach acquired the REX at the end of 2012 with plans of restoring the historic landmark to its former glory.
Now completely restored, the long-vacant REX Theatre serves as a venue for Harvest Church, for small-scale live theater, and for movies, concerts and other special events.
Imagine a place where you can watch a movie, see a live band, or enjoy a play written and performed by local actors. Imagine that same place as a venue for live, concert-style worship and relevant biblical teaching.
From the moment you walk in, it looks, feels, and smells like a classic theater: the high ceilings and flip-bottom seats; the long, velvety curtains; the inviting aroma from the concession area.
Our vision for the REX includes celebrating Pensacola’s history by preserving the building’s 1930’s art-deco façade, integrating into the downtown community by offering a variety of wholesome activities and events, and stimulating downtown growth by helping to re-awaken our section of Palafox Street.
