The Rex Cinema was a typical suburban 1930’s suburban cinema, in this case designed by noted architect Eric Norman Bailey of Maidenhead.
It opened on 10th April 1939 and was built on a semi stadium plan with a raised seating area as a circle that didn’t overhang the rear stalls area. It operated as an independent cinema throughout its life. During the late-1940’s it put to use its large stage and a combination of variety shows and films played here.
Located in the Collier Row district of Romford, the Rex Cinema closed on 27th June 1959 screening the double bill Sir Donald Wolfit starring in “Blood of the Vampire” and Brigitte Bardot starring in “Love Is My Profession (En cas de malheur)”.
The building was converted into retail use, now a Tesco supermarket.
