Cine Rex

Located in the Cinelandia district of Rio, next to the Teatro Rival on the very narrow Rua Alvaro Alvim. The Cine Rex is a huge cinema with two balconies, dating from the golden age of movie palaces. Built in 1933, it opened as the Cine-Teatro Rex in January 1934. Seating was provided for 1,200 in the orchestra level and 1,080 in the two balconies.

In recent years, it has operated as an adult cinema, screening straight porn films to a mixed gay and straight male audience.
