Overview

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.

I feel so lucky that this is on my doorstep! The cinema is really beautiful - fabulous art-deco style, and you feel really well looked after. The owner does a short speech before each film which is a great touch. Love coming here with friends,...More

This place is a real gem. It's quirky and a really interesting place to visit unlike the mainstream cinemas you have. The staff genuinely care about your experience.

Love the decor in this cinema, it had a great atmosphere. The seats were comfy and all the staff very friendly. Went out for an evening with my mum and she loved it too. Definitely a must visit if your visiting Berko.

Just have to keep trying, there are 3 persons at the box office, usually having to sell on door, print tickets for those collecting, take calls and general enquiries......so be patient

We park at the other end of Berkhampsted in the car park next to Waitrose. Then walk up through the High Street. Always found a space and charges are reasonable.
