Built for independent operators Simmons Theatres, the Rex Cinema opened on 20th September 1937 and was located in Tilehurst a suburb of Reading.
Seating was arranged in a semi stadium plan with a raised balcony at the rear which had no overhang over the rear stalls.
It was taken over fully by Associated British Cinemas (ABC) from 30th August 1943 (their subsidiary Mayfair circuit had been operating it previously) and they continued to operate the Rex Cinema until its closure on 18th October 1958.
It was converted into a factory and offices, being totally gutted inside. Subsequent use was as a car showroom, but after laying empty and derelict for many years the building was demolished in 2001 and a Pizza Hut restaurant was built on the site.
