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!

Lovely 'authentic' Gatsby style setting. The waiting staff are very helpful and attentive. The cocktails are wonderful, well presented and mixed to perfection. We had a couple of bar snacks, prawns and dish cakes. Yumm. Would recommend a visit or two or three

I am a big fan of independent cinemas and have to say the REX is a real breathe of fresh air. A step back into the fashionable 30's.. I would recommend a seat at the front on the tables. Each table comes with large red seats which sets a royal atmosphere.. Warm, welcoming staff and particularly liked the way they... More

We go to the Rex a lot, and it is always fabulous. Tonight the film was brilliant, with added comfort, Crabbies and cheese, it really can not be beaten for a great night out.

There can be nothing bad to say about The Rex - apart from the problem of getting tickets - and that is only because it is so good that most days sell out straight away! But maybe the best thing is this - they have special showings for people with babies. Yes, they are noisy and a touch chaotic, but... More

Enjoy every visit to the Rex - classy cinema, comfortable seats, opportunity to sit at table with bar in background. No horrible smell of popcorn and gallons of Coke! Love getting current films as well as old classics and foreign language films.

The Rex is a wonderful cinema. Firstly because of it's style and comfort. Secondly because of the eclectic mix of films it shows. Everything from the current Hollywood blockbusters to interesting low budget films from around the world. The only problem is getting tickets!

Just the most delightful and civilized experience. You will never visit a multiplex again. Cinema going as it should be.

We were wowed by this impressive cinema. The whole experience beginning to end was wonderful. This place really works on the experience of cinema with massive very comfortable seats, a very welcoming bar on entry not to mention the decor. We will be back if we can manage to get our hands on any tickets again.
