You can't beat the Rex -a wonderful example of Wareham community life. Volunteer run. Now with digital projection too.

“Fantastic friendly and great value”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Absolutely fantastic - sound quality great, screen great.
Great bar serving local beer to take in with you.
Ice cream sold in auditorium at interval after adverts.
Really friendly helpful staff. TAKE A CUSHION - I found it comfortable but my husband got numb bum syndrome!
Cheaper than conventional multi- screen cinemas and bags of character :O)

We saw Gambit there in December. The surroundings were fun including the original ticket machine in the box office. It was a good place to watch a film too!
