Rex Kinos

Located in Darmstadt to the south of Frankfurt. The 400-seat Palast-Lichtspiele was opened in 1919. In 1953 it was briefly re-named Roxy Kino. On 28th August 1954 it re-opened as the Rex Kino following renovation to the plans of architects Jager & Jarolin and expansion to 600-seats. By the early-1980’s it was operating as an adult cinema.

It was remodeled in 1982 to the plans of architect Hans Kieser and the cinema was converted into 3-screens, returning to regular film and art house films. Later a 4th screen has been added. The 4-screen Rex Kinos has seating provided in the original main Rex screen for 235. There are 120 seats in the Classic screen, 98 in the Bambi screen and 88 in the Broadway screen. It is operated by the Kinopolis chain.

The Rex is one of three cinemas, operated by Kinopolis under their Citydome brand, in a small shopping precinct in the centre of the town. The Rex is the ‘art-house’ cinema (hence the auditoriums are named, rather than numbered), the Festival mainly shows films in their original language while the six screen Helia is the ‘mainstream’ multiplex. During a visit in June 2015 I was warmly welcomed by a member of staff from the Helia who opened up the Rex so I could have a look round (this was in the afternoon; the Rex opens in the early evening). The ‘geography’ of the building was hard to follow, but it didn’t appear as if the original cinema had been sub-divided to create the four screen, as the ‘Rex’ appears to be the full, original space. The opening date of the original Rex is thought to be the 1950s, or possibly earlier.
