This is not just a cinema but a lovely experience in our small market town of Berkhamsted! Have seen some brilliant Art Films over the years not to be found in the Cinema Complexes as well as blockbusters. Fabulous!

If you enjoy a luxurious Art Deco setting with first class screen and sound the you'll enjoy The Rex. You can have a table downstairs and drink and nibble your way through a film but I prefer the seating upstairs in to my mind a better way to enjoy a film. You can literally watch a dreadful film here and... More

This is the first time I have been to The Rex and it was better than I imagined. We were lucky enough to sit at table for four downstairs which was extremely comfortable and relaxing. Such a beautiful place to enjoy a film. Will be returning very soon I hope.

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.

We managed to get table seats for the first time for the 4 of us. It was well worth it! Great view and the bonus of a bar that serves all types of drinks. An excellent independent cinema that is a must visit, great for couples and families.
