Great experience which will make you never want to visit a multiplex again. Before the REX we used to go to the cinema about once per year. Now, we visit the REX 2 to 3 times a month to capture this unique relaxed environment with a big screen and varied films both mainstream and small budget. Comfortable seats and tables... More

And comes complete with eccentric owner who introduces the film. The only real problem with the place is it is almost impossible to get tickets.

Never been here before but went yesterday and cannot wait to go back. Great looking building. Great interior and good service. Lovely choice of drinks and snacks served by people who honestly seem to care. Fabulously comfy seats and "interesting" intro by man who (maybe) owns the plAce. Anyway. Great experience and can't wait to go back.

Seen many films here. It's like stepping back into the 1920s. You can imagine Poirot sitting down for a glass of wine. Try get the table and chairs together. Get yourself a nice chilled Chablis, relax and take in the film. The only way to see a film in my book. True you will get better sound and vision in... More

What a treat ! Comfy chairs , a table for your wine and reasonably priced snacks . This is the only way to watch a film ,you must go and give it a try. The ladies on the box office desk were so friendly and helpful .i will definitely return to The Rex and will recommend to everyone I know.

If you want to see a film in comfort with a glass of wine and plenty of leg room then you must try the Rex. It's beautiful and the staff are great.

I absolutely adore the Rex. The seats and leg room is exceptional in comparison to most modern cinemas. It shows current films and has a really warm feel about it. Suitable for absolutly all ages
