About
The Rex has one huge screen set in a glorious 1938 art-deco proscenium with the sharpest film projection and clearest non-booming sound anywhere in the world. Throughout, its seating is big and soft. It has been called luxurious. It is better. It is civilized. It reminds us of what we have long stopped expecting from public buildings.

A wonderful experience!
Sep 2021 • Couples
The Rex Cinema is a wonderful experience. We sat in the lower section, so had a nice table and swivel chairs to relax in while watching the movie.
A totally different experience to any other Cinema trip I've had.
Great staff, and the fact someone introduced the film I person was a great touch.
Very reasonable prices too, and a nice Bar downstairs also while watching the film.

The decor is spectacular, love the art deco design!

Definitely worth visiting!

Disappointing customer service after lockdown
Sep 2021 • Couples
We were given a £50 voucher for the Rex for our wedding present at the end of 2019. Unfortunately because of various lockdowns and us having our first child we’ve been unable to use it. We hoped to use it recently as our baby is finally old enough for us to leave her but the Rex refused to extend it another month saying it had already been extended by 6 months from Jan 2021 (despite us still being in a lockdown then). This is very disappointing customer service and it has unfortunately put us off from visiting again.

Always enjoyable

Always a great experience. Comfortable, affordable and always look forward to the pre-movie James speech!
Big comfortable chairs, great old theatre decor.

Great place to watch films
Aug 2021 • Family
Love the Rex. Such a fabulous place to watch a film. We went here on a Sunday to watch "in the Heights ". You can have a glass of wine and sit in a very comfy chair while you watch. What's not to like

disappointed
Aug 2021
Very disappointed that the cinema was unable to honour a gift voucher for £30 we received as a Christmas gift in 2018, unfortunately 2019 was a very busy year and we thought we had lots of time to go before the original expiry date of June 2020. Obviously that was before Covid hit, apparently the voucher would only have been extended until June 2021, which means we have missed out!! Such a shame :(

Very Special and Unusual Place to enjoy a film in comfort it’s a little gem
Jul 2021
We were regular visitors to The Rex before lockdown and very much missed our big comfortable chairs and table whilst watching a film experience. The films they show are always varied and a good mix of new and old favourites. It is so far away from the multiplex experience , like another planet really. So comfortable and enjoyable with the bar service to your table. We visited on Saturday 3rd July, We had a table downstairs on the lower level which gave us access to the emergency exit/ toilet access from the ground floor. This is especially good for those with disabilities/wheelchair access. You can enter through the side door which makes things so much easier. Now my husband is disabled we can still enjoy our visits to this very special and unusual cinema. I made sure my husband was seated and then checked us in upstairs. I was very impressed with the offer of any assistance we required from the very attentive staff, especially the young man who was really kind. Though we didn’t require help, we knew it was available. I very much hope the Rex continues to thrive in these strange times. It really deserves to. If you decide to visit you won’t regret it. But yes, book early !

Great to be back at the pictures
Oct 2020
It was great to be back in The Rex. It used to be difficult to get tickets, but (sadly) now they are plentiful. The staff are wonderful, checking at the door if you have a booking and then guiding you to your seats. We sat on the seats with tables near the front; a great cinematic experience. The host makes a short address before the film, with some sharp comments about life and then some context to the film. Get there soon and often - it is so much better than the appalling chain cinemas. Oh, snacks and drinks available. Wine is very good and most reasonably priced.

Beautiful Rex Cinema
Sep 2020 • Couples
This is an absolute beautiful Art Deco cinema in a fantastic building. The interior is simply stunning, staff are friendly, helpful and extremely polite. Just before the film starts the owner of this wonderful establishment says a few words about the film. We absolutely love his sense of humour the delivery and the brutal honesty of his reviews.
The whole experience is just wonderful.

Great way to see a film
Mar 2020
Lovely big comfortable seats which are staggered so the person in front (unless they are a giant with masses of hair) doesn't obscure your view. Although I'm over 60 and could get a concession on the price, I'm more than happy to pay £5 for a matinee showing (slightly more for an evening one) Its a beautiful Art Deco style cinema, far more enjoyable experience than going to an awful multiplex. Word of warning though, book early as they sell out fast but with popular films they do show for some time. I've been four times since Christmas!
