What a lovely thing to have in your small town. An original unspoilt Cinema. This cinema shows a lovely variation of films, some classics, some contemporary and all in a lovely 1940s style setting. The Cinema staff can arrange private film parties with food which is a unique way to hold a celebration. If you can then support this venue... More

This is not quite our nearest cinema but it is our first choice. We love the intimate old fashioned atmosphere in comparison to one of the large multi-screen places. Occasionally there is a special event with a "celeb" introducing a film. The Rex is a gem and we are lucky to have it close by.

Charming little old fashioned cinema run by a charity. Fun place to visit - need to book if it's a popular film, but they might still sell too many tickets, and have to get out extra seating! They often get old and arty films. You can get your glass of wine etc from the bar and take it in with... More

We liked the Art Deco feel, the lovely people running it and the brilliant local animation short. There was nothing to dislike !

Well worth a trip to remember the good old days. Enjoy a drink from the bar, enjoy the amusing trailers and reminisce about the good old days.

This is an old fashioned cinema. It charges reasonable prices, has basic but comfortable seats and was a pleasant reminder of trips to the cinema when I was young. It was warm, comfortable and would I go again...I sure would

Lovely old cinema with a good selection of films. We love the film festival that this supported by this cinema. Very centrally located, with lots of free parking nearby.

Puts modern cinemas to shame. Small scale done brilliantly with knowledgable, enthusiastic staff who are welcoming to out of towners. Fantastic that you can take your drinks in with you and relax properly in what feels like an over-sized front room x

When you enter a cinema your first impression is of the authenticity of the ticket man. Does he/she really believe the world of film is dreamlike? Well you are in for a surprise. As once you step inside the REX you have now entered a time machine. One of the oldest projection systems in the world beckoned by a dedicated... More

what fun to go to a small, country cinema and find everything you could wish for.. it is comfortable, it shows really good films, and it has a varied programme which offers a wider choice without all the horror and violence. Long may it flourish!
