Rex Theatre in Wheeling

Designed by Wheeling architect Edward Bates Franzheim, construction began on the 900-seat Rex Theater in 1914. 

WWVA broadcast its weekly live music program, WWVA Jamboree in the Rex Theater from 1962 to 1965.

In later years, it was called the Coronet Theater. It was demolished in 1989 and replaced by one-story expansion structure of Wheeling Office Supply.
