The Rex is much more of an "occasion" than a trip to the cinema, with an experience that's highlighted by your choice of film. Admittedly, its tough to get tickets for the good stuff - but if you catch a goodie, you come away feeling like you've been part of something so much more than "heading to the flix". My... More

I love going to the cinema, however, The Rex makes it that bit more special. Very helpful staff and good films. Excellent service from the 'bar staff' who serve wonderful coffee.

Set in an old Theatre with original stage it is cinema with a difference. Lower area with tables to pre order snacks and drinks. Seating area with ample leg room to stretch out the longest of legs. Bar in the cinema where you can get hot cold alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and snacks

This beautifully restored art deco treasure has quiet rightly been voted the best cinema in Europe.The interior, seating, staff and programe's are all first class. Enjoying a drink while seated downstairs in the large comfy chairs at a table is as a good as any cinema trip will get.
