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.
