There was a theatre in Loraine, Texas that was named Lorex during the mid 50's. There looks like that little city only had one theatre at a time. So that theatre might have been once called the Best, which goes back to the early 30's. And later called the Hub Theatre during the 40's.

How about this theory: The Best, became the Lore, became the Lorex (although that seating capacity given in 1950 is a couple of hundred over and could be a mistake/misprint).
The smaller Hub obviously didn't last too long.
Don; You posed the mystery. Is Loraine the correct town? have you ever been there before?

Thanks everyone! After studying a Texas map I am convinced the Lorex is or was in Loraine. I have definitely explored and recall some of the other towns around Loraine.
Thanks again...I had given up on this one as it is the only "Lorex" that I have ever seen or heard of.
