Not much needs to be said about The Rex that hasn't already been said. If you can get a seat for a film you think you might enjoy, then just go. It makes an evening 'at the pictures' truly memorable. Comfortable, elegant and beautifully restored,...More

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.
