We booked a table, it felt very decadent to sit at a table with superbly comfortable armchairs and a bar while watching the film. In addition to providing a beautiful interior and comfort, this cinema shows a fabulous range of films not offered at chain cinemas.

This place is so great that we now refuse to go to the cinema elsewhere - the experience is just such a pleasure from start to finish. Comfortable seats, with masses of leg room, lovely environment, best of all no popcorn or smelly hotdogs! But you can have civilised drinks at your seat and cheese and biscuits!

If you've never been, go! It's really the best cinema experience you could have without owning your own picture-house. Well worth experimenting with 'unknown' films, despite the occasional inevitable disappointment; it always feels good to be there.

The REX is a cinema fitting for a town where the average car appears to be an Audi or a BMW, but still ticket prices are very reasonable for the overall experience. The obvious benefit of the REX over a multiplex is overall comfort, far beyond that of even the most modern multiplex cinema. As it is appears to be... More

Seeing a film here could be compared to travelling in business class as opposed to economy. It's that much nicer and it feels special. I know the drinks aren't included, but at least you can have proper drinks, and the rhubarb ice cream they sell is delicious.

Brilliant film in the most unique and beautiful Art Deco surroundings. Once you have visited the Rex you will never want to see a film in any other venue. The most comfortable seats either upstairs or downstairs and a bar to keep you happy!

I was taken here by my daughter who promised me something different. She was right. What an interesting place! We were at the tables on the lower floor with lovely comfy seats. I am recovering from a leg problem and needed to have it supported staff very kindly found me something to rest my leg on. Service with a smile... More

I have visited the cinema on a number of occasions, and found it a delightful experience, especially with the possibility to take drinks and snacks to your seat. The introduction by Berko's Barry Norman considerably adds to the occasion, and the showing of the film was great. Unfortunately our tickets were for the back row of the gallery which we... More

We went to see Selma with another couple. What a revelation this picture house was! Beautiful plush interior, private tables, quirky host, a nice bottle of red and a cheese platter. And the film was good too. It's a gem. Beg borrow or steal some tickets!
