The Rex is exempt from the force-fed meal-with-a-drink guide, so don’t come hungry - a little social thirst is allowed.
Our cheese plates & snacks etc, will be available as always. JH ... See MoreSee Less
Sitting and watching a film at the Rex with a glass of red wine (large) and a cheese plate. That puts a bounce in my step on this dreary lockdown Monday morning! Can’t wait:)
Love love love this. Missed this so much.
Welcome back! Wishing you a prosperous New Year! X
Will wait a while yet. No desire to sit inside with other folk for a while. Outdoors, super ventilated, distanced....sad but best to stop the spread of the virus.
While I am glad you are operating, could I suggest you have a better system of maintaining distancing of people going in and out of the foyer? Last I time I went, social distancing was pretty non existent, thanks
Please don't take this the wrong way, I am pleased that's the case for both the business and community. But it's not really a level playing field for the business that solely rely on food and beverage sales....ie the pubs. But as I said, great news none the less.
So happy about this 😍
How? Not sure I understand why it’s different?
Ah - counting down the minutes till I move back in to my second home!!!
We’d like this page to remain a place to share information regarding The Rex Cinema and not a space for debate of any kind. So, we shall be removing any comments we deem to be irrelevant or unhelpful. Thank you 😊
Can we come with people outside of our household?
Why is it?
Saturday...can’t wait 💕
Missed Rex so much back soon ❤️
Back on Friday. Can’t wait!

Lottie Moore Ruth Connolly we gotta go
Kevin Anthony Twomey date night? X
Are you allowing queuing in person
What 'Christmas Carol' is it ? Thanks
It’s such a shame that you are not showing Home Alone at Berkhamsted and you are showing Elf on the Friday that the kids break up so we can’t see that either! 😔😔😔
Such a shame you don’t do an earlier showing of a Christmas film on 24th for the kids like Odyssey. 5pm is too late when Santa is coming that night!
I will open a box of wine for the end of this year!!!!!!!!!cheers!!!!!!🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾

This month I was due to see 'I am woman', 'The Ladykillers' and 'The Last Waltz', so hoping they are on in December.
The Rex will be temporarily closed from Thursday 5th November.
In line with new government guidance, we will be temporarily closing our doors once again. Showings for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will go ahead as usual, with all our safety precautions in place.
If you have made bookings for 5th November onwards and you accepted the online terms to automatically receive a credit note, this will be processed shortly and you do not need to contact us. If you have not accepted these terms and would like to be issued with a credit note, please call the box office (01442 877759) this week. Our telephone lines will be open Monday-Wednesday 10.30am-6pm.
Your continued support is hugely appreciated by everyone here at The Rex. If you would like to support us through this second lockdown, you can now purchase a membership (ABL) for 2021.

£1.50 off your ticket.
Up to six seats per show, including your own. (Five at usual box office prices).

Rather than "temporarily closed", can we think of it as an "intermission" :-)? We'll be back as soon as you open your doors. Keep safe and well.
Looking forward to seeing Out of Africa on Wednesday and the rescheduled Last Waltz and Officer and a Gentlemen. Like Arnie ... we'll be back.
Love this place so much. So much that we bought a house five minutes walk away. See you tomorrow for the Chicago 7 and then see you again shortly after. How about Aliens for the reopening night? We were really looking forward to that one.
Sorry to read this, we will be back before and after lockdown.
We knew this was coming but it still stings a bit! (quite a bit actually) Hopefully, this lockdown will improve the overall situation re covid for everyone and help us get to the place we are all missing, normalcy. Stay safe everyone:)
We loved being back last week and look forward to returning. Stay safe & well
See you after the intermission! Stay safe everyone!
Have tried calling To say don’t refund me, I’m sure your box office is busy 🙈 call it a donation ... I want you there after this 🥰
Stay safe everyone and we’ll be back soon I hope
Oh dear, here we go again. I am so sorry for you and hope that you will be open again before too long.
I am so very sad to hear this. It was brilliant to be back and I can’t wait until The Rex reopens its doors again. In the meantime I hope you and your loved ones remain safe and we’ll see you for one last hurrah before the lights go out, albeit briefly, again. 💛❤️💛❤️💛❤️
Out of Africa last night was an absolute treat...accompanied by two G&Ts - heaven. Have you thought about running a film discussion group online ? Would happily pay to contribute to your survival...as I'm sure would others.
Will you reopen with the same films? I'd love to see The Last Waltz, what an incredible film.
Already looking forward to the reopening.
As Arnie says. "I,ll be back ". Keep safe and kerp my seat warm James.
If we booked over the phone do we automatically get credit notes or do I still need to call? Trying to avoid clogging your phone lines!! Thanks
Miss Juneteenth- Tonight at 7.30pm.
Tickets here: therexberkhamsted.savoysystems.co.uk/TheRexBerkhamsted.dll/TSelectItems.waSelectItemsPrompt.TcsWe...
A former beauty pageant queen attempts to relive her glory days in this sincere mother-daughter drama
Set in Fort Worth, Texas, single mother Turquoise (Nicole Beharie) is preparing her daughter Kai (Alexis Chikaeze) for the Miss Juneteenth pageant. Named after the annual holiday in June, which commemorates the day Texan slaves were freed in 1865, the pageant offers a college scholarship to its winner. Although Turquoise is seen as a local celebrity for winning as a teen, she never got to fulfil her dreams past the pageant, remarking that her daughter is “my dream now”. Working two jobs to try and make ends meet, she is fiercely determined to buy Kai a poofy aquamarine dress worth hundreds of dollars, even when the electricity is cut off at one point in the film. Yet Kai has different interests, preferring to dance and spend time with her boyfriend than perfect her etiquette, inevitably causing tension with her mother. While navigating this conflict, Turquoise is also being pursued romantically by Kai’s father Ronnie (Kendrick Sampson) and her boss Bacon (Akron Watson). Beharie is radiant in this tender portrait of motherhood and the American dream. (Rachel Williams)

Tickets available for tonight's showing of Summer of '42.
Book here: therexberkhamsted.savoysystems.co.uk/TheRexBerkhamsted.dll/TSelectItems.waSelectItemsPrompt.TcsWe...
Summer 42 waxes nostalgic about lost innocence, coming of age, and a bygone America consumed by a devastating world war.
Nominated for four Oscars, and a personal favourite of Stanley Kubrick, this 1971 box-office sensation follows the adventures of three good-natured, sexual curious teens - on an unnamed island during the summer days of 1942.
With her husband off to war, Dorothy also has a lot of time on her hands, which Hermie, one of the hormonal boys, is more than anxious to assist with. Eventually, it will lead to what has now become a controversial moment in film history ‒ an artistic variation of The Graduate, if you will ‒ though presented in a far-more serious sense. Summer of '42 is an honest and sincere look at that point in time where we really do start to grow up.
Director Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird), aims for another mix of universal feelings within a specific time and place. In the early hijinks phase, the film seems like a dry run for Porky's, but it later gets into the business of fluttering curtains, walks on sandy beaches and longing glances. (Jack Whiting)

We came on Monday evening for the first time since your re-opening on Aug 1st and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more! The film, My Afternoons With Marguerite is a sublime piece of filmmaking and was a joy to watch. However, the best thing about the evening was just being back in the Rex and feeling that magic that makes the cinema so special. It takes you away for a bit and allows you to feel that everything is ok in the world. A bit of escapism....absolutely! And boy did it feel good!! Thanks also to James and the entire Rex staff for having all the covid restrictions in order regarding social distancing, cleanliness, etc and in such an unencumbered way. We sat there feeling like a million bucks!!:)
