Attraction details
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.

To watch an old movie in an old movie house; eating a meal and with a bottle of wine ..... well it doesnt get much better.

We were absolutely enchanted to discover an attraction which does not exist in order to maximise profits. We have all developed an idea from experience of what it means to go to the cinema. This is totally different. Armchairs, sitting at tables, lots of leg room, art deco decor, snacks in non-rustling packaging, freshly made cheese board, good wine selection, the quality of the film becomes secondary. I cannot commend this too highly for an excellent night out at a very reasonable price.

The Rex is a classy upscale cinema, have a drink, watch a film and be treated like an adult rather than a teenager.

Feel very special . feels like you are in someones sitting room !
The owner comes out before the film and talks to the audience ! where else would you get this ? Booking is essential.
