Pensacola’s historic REX Theatre seats 400 and features America's top stand-up comedians (as seen on HBO, Comedy Central, Netflix & more), a weekly family-friendly comedy magic (by The Illusionist as seen on NBC, FOX & ABC), Blues & Jazz bands and much more.  We not only offer soda, juice, and energy drinks & snacks, but we're excited to soon offer beer and wine. Not all shows are G-rated, but NO shows are R-rated


Our city is vibrant and alive and our goal is to add even more energy while making a positive impact on our city.  One Goal Productions is not only the booking promotor for these events, but is a national nonprofit that uses entertainment to bring bullying awareness and suicide prevention among our youth.  They are donating a portion of ticket sales to help provide no-cost assemblies to schools here in our city or 1/2 off assemblies to nearby neighboring towns. 



The REX Theatre is located on the very popular Palafox Street, known as the gateway to Pensacola and the core artery of the downtown community.  The REX is located within a 2-15 minute walk to breweries, restaurants, hotels, shopping & popular night life spots (including Seville Quarter, Wild Gregs Salon, The Kennedy, Old Hickory Whiskey Bar, Tin Cow, World of Beer, Cask & Flights, Dog House Deli, Big Top Brewery, Angelina's, Fosko Coffee Barre, Blend Lounge, Bodacious, Restaurant Iron, Perfect Plain Brewery, Jackson's Steakhouse, Palafox Market, Odd Colony Brewing Company & much more).  To help you get around the city, Trolleys, bus, Uber, Lyft, Pensacola Bay Cruises & bike rentals are all available.




The REX Theatre, built in 1922, is a historic building located in downtown Pensacola. It's first tenant was Rhodes Furniture. The building was refitted in the 1930s as a movie theater.  It was owned by the Saenger Amusement Co., which also operated the Saenger and Isis theaters in Pensacola.  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 REX Theatre serves as a venue for Generation Church, for small-scale live theater, stand-up comedy (featuring America's best comics as seen on HBO, Last Comic Standing, Netflix, & Comedy Central), Comedy Magic by The Illusionist Tom Coverly (as seen on ABC, CBC, FOX, NBC & has entertained numerous celebrities including; cast of Batman vs Superman, Duck Dynasty & C.SI. NY just to name a few), Jazz & Blues concerts and other special events.

These are NOT church sponsored events.  However, we ask that our comedians adhere to the following; NO vulgarity, NO "F" bombs & NO explicit content. Not all our shows are G-rated, but none of our shows are R-rated.
