Owner description: 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.

they dont show the very latest films but it's well worth the wait! Comfy seats, fab coffee and delicious cheese plate. And wine. Or beer!

The Rex Berkhamstead is unique. We have been members for years. It's a beautiful Art Deco cinema, the owner James gets up on stage to announce the film and sometimes have a funny little rant before it starts. You can have cheese and wine served whilst you sit and watch a well chosen film in your big velvet armchair! :)

This cinema is the best for the last 3 years I have been visiting haven't been disappointed such a well preserved vintage establishment,the other plus side is the comfy seating and the ability to have any drink you like from the bar and sit in comfort will definitely be visiting very soon.

the Rex is a great place to see a film it's a great atmosphere-, you can sit around a table and have drinks from the bar. The selection of films is diverse from the hollywood blockbusters to niche foreign films artfully made.There's 's a genuine love of film from the
people who work there. We saw a film called "The Hunt'' a Danish film i think. A great film in an excellent venue.
