Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Rex Theater Concession Stand …

Ritz Theater_SFW_8 May 13

Here is a photo taken at the old Rex Theater in downtown Pensacola of the Concession Stand.  Look at those prices … hot dog for 15 cents and 5 cents for a snow cone.  Now, I do not think that they even sell hot dogs and I know that you could not get a snow cone.  In fact, I cannot even remember the last time I saw hot dogs advertised at  a theater’s concession stand.  Ten dollars gets a tub of pop corn and a watered down cola … times have sure changed!!  I am hoping to do a few changes to this blog and my personal photography blog  site, 

They are not going to be any major changes, but I hope they are  a slight improvement in the way that the blog will be presented to you to view.  I am always trying to improve the way these blogs will come across to you.  This is only me doing this and I am learning as I  fumble along, so I want to give it a more polished look.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank

  1. I grew up in Pensacola and did all the movies along Palafox downtown – Florida, Rex, Isis, and Saenger. I don’t remember the Ritz. Could that be the Rex?

    Thanks for sharing all these photographs, Frank

    • Thanks for the correction … I think it is the REX THEATER. My father had written “Ritz” on the negative envelope, so I will go back and make changes to the post. Thanks again for keeping me straight … Frank

      • Hey Frank,
        Do you have any more interior shots of the REX Theatre? We’re renovating it and would love to see some pictures of what it used to look like.

      • Josh … a girl asked me about this a month or so ago and I told her to contact the Pensacola Historical Society. Jackie down there would be the person to ask. Also, JD and Michelle O’Neal at Architectural Design or Concept might be able to help. For some reason I think that they might have had something to do with the Rex at one time. Good Luck … Frank
