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!

This is an absolutely fantastic little cinema, everybody's friendly and it has a more personal feel to it than other places. Nostalgia abounds, it all starts when you're given a ticket to up to see the movie in a cozy art-deco hall. Ice cream is served during the adverts, which, if you're lucky, are personalised and very novel. They portray... More

We went to this adorable little cinema as tourists to see The Grand Budapest Hotel which was a very apt film for the place. It's a small cinema, that hasn't been modernised so it's full of charm. It's also run by volunteers so kudos to them. Everyone was so friendly, and when the projectionist saw us taking photos he even... More

Had my first visit here recently and absolutely loved it. This lovely little cinema has friendly helpful staff, comfy seats with heaps of legroom and a real charm. Midweek evening and it was packed out. You can take alcohol into the cinema and in proper glasses -the prices are very reasonable and I will definitely be back!
