REX Cinemas is a movie theatre screening Tamil movies and the occassional Malay movie. It was given a new lease of life in 2009. It is among the oldest movie theatres that is still in operation.
It opened with much fanfare in 1946 by Shaw Organization and brought the movies to audiences for over 30 years. With a floundering movie industry, it was converted into a concert venue.
The building is built in a simplified Art Deco style and has had many reincarnations. Starting out as a cinema, then a concert venue, becoming an ice skating rink, then a church, a disco and finally back to being a cinema. Could this be its final rebirth?
