In view of the current and difficult situation, we are following the Government’s advice and the Rex Cinema will remain temporarily closed until it is safe to reopen and welcome you back to enjoy more great films on the big screen.  All the activities of the Purbeck Film Charitable Trust will cease from 1st April, and this also includes Purbeck Film Festival events for the coming months.  Please be reassured that we will be operational again as soon as we are able.

Our building works to improve cinema access have been continuing as far as possible and already the exciting transformation of the cinema's bar, toilets and stair lift is taking shape.  Although the works have now temporarily ceased, we look forward to not only sharing our fantastic new facilities with you when we are able to, but to celebrating with you this huge achievement, made possible through your generosity.

We will announce our reopening in advance of the date and look forward to welcoming you all back to our beloved community cinema as soon as possible.

With our best wishes to you all,

The Rex Management




Information about booked tickets at the Rex:

All on line bookings for performances that have now been cancelled, have been safely and automatically refunded to cardholders.

Those tickets booked through the Rex box office will need to be refunded in person.  If you have purchased advance tickets via the box office in cash or on a credit card and have not been able to speak to the Rex team about this yet, please don't worry.  Once the cinema reopens we will be able to deal with any queries or refunds that we have not been able to address prior to the cinema's closure.  We apologise for any inconvenience if you have experienced difficulties contacting us.

Lawrence of Arabia tickets:

All ticket holders who purchased a ticket for the 'Lawrence: After Arabia' screening and Q&A, due to take place in May, should have now received an email from us. 

The Director, Mark J T Griffin has confirmed that the film release date has been put back, hopefully to the autumn, so we will announce the new screening dates for this premiere as soon as possible.  All tickets are to be honoured, so please retain these as they can be automatically transferred to the new screening date when it is finalised.  If you are unable to attend on the new dates, or if you wish to obtain a refund, then we will be happy to assist you on our return.

Thank you.

The Rex Management
