Here's a day shot of the Rex Theatre in Fallon, NV. The Rex originally opened in 1920 as a home for vaudeville and silent movies. Several decades ago, the theatre was faced with fires on two separate occasions and damage from an earthquake. Today, the Rex Theatre features two screens and still features first run movies. For more information, see the Cinema Treasures website. 12-04

Check out the Crystal Theatre in Elko. The script lettering on the marquee gives the theatre the look of a throwback to the mid-century. 10-06
