I love this place: as you step inside it is like stepping back in time. I tend to opt to see older, classic films when I go. Lovely! Drinks and snacks are served there. It is so much nicer than visiting a more modern cinema- a real treat. TIP: arrive in plenty of time to find a parking place!

You have to get your tickets on the last Saturday of the month, queue up early in the morning, but the lovely staff comes round with coffee, tea and biscuits. No popcorn here, you can have some cheese and biscuits instead. Lovely cinema in a beautiful town.

We went to see the Jersey Boys on Friday. Unfortunately, having seen the West End Show 5 times, this film was boring, to say the least. Nothing wrong with the set-up of the cinema though.

The Rex is a great place to watch a film. The atmosphere is always good and the seats have plenty of space. I would regiment this place above any local cinema if you can get tickets.

Going to the Rex in Berko feels as though you're part of the film.its comfortable and has a lovely ambience, it is a special evening out (or afternoon)

I have been to the Rex several times and I love it there. I like to visit independent establishments, and the Rex is a great example of that. Good food and drink, nice staff, and fantastic films. My most recent visit was to see 'Advanced Style' and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. A classic example of the Rex's... More

As an ex staff member of this cinema perhaps my opinions are slightly jaded, however I feel like its time to give this old work place a fair write up. Like I said, I used to work the bar here back in my early teens. This cinema has a wonderful atmosphere and you will not find a movie going experience... More

If only all cinemas could be like this. The long-term dream of one man and it's been wonderful to see it become the venue it has. Always booked, super-comfortable, thinking differently - yes you can go to the bar downstairs during the film, yes they will serve you a selection of cheese and biscuits bringing it to your seat and...

Maybe the title of my review just outlines my lack of experience but - in my humble opinion - you will not find a finer cinema (or cinematic experience) outside of the boutique cinemas of London. Upon entering the doors the immediate feeling is the complete opposite of that felt when entering a multiplex. No soulless queuing for tickets or... More

My husband and I visited The Rex last year and loved it so much. We sadly haven't been back yet but it is most definitely on the list of things to do. You are actually shown to your seats (do you remember those days?). The seats are enormous, you have leg room, you can actually get comfortable. The drinks are... More
