The Rex Cinema in Berkhamsted. "Only Lovers Left Alive" Tilda Swinton

For those of you who haven't been to the Rex in Berkhamsted, it is a stunning Art Deco cinema, lovingly restored and reopened in 2004 with a huge local effort.

Even if you are not sure about the film, the cinema is worth the visit on its own.

Most films sell out here so you will need to be quick.

There are caberet seats at the front of the cinema with tables and a bar serving coffee, alcohol and snacks. Tickets for the caberet area at the front and we have 8 reserved.

Charge is £12.50 (£10.00 for the ticket and £2.50 towards admin, paypal fees, queuing in the rain for an hour, coffee and snacks)

Tables 4 and 5 reserved.

If demand is high, please put yourself on the waiting list and I will see if we can get some more tickets nearer the time.

We can go to Gatsbys for a drink afterwards.

Due to the number restrictions you will need to pay via Paypal when you RSVP.

Review from Rex site

2013, Cert 15, 123 mins

Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, play elegantly grungy vampires contemplating love, art, music and literature in today’s strange modern world.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, Adam, an underground musician, living alone in a semi-dilapidated Detroit townhouse; which heaves with vinyl records, vintage recording paraphernalia and antique musical instruments.

Deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, Adam, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic wife Eve. Eve has been resting in Tangier, Morocco, where she hangs out with fellow ancient vampire, Elizabethan dramatist Christopher ‘Kit’ Marlowe (John Hurt).

Visiting them in both their dreams is Ava (playfully performed by Mia Wasikowska)., Ava, Eve’s younger sister, sporting all the recklessness of youth, arrives from Los Angeles – very hungry – and shatters the couples idyllic seclusion.

“At the film’s heart is the perfect casting of Hiddleston and Swinton, both actors whose disarming attractiveness is marked with an otherworldly pallor.”(Film4)

“You thought there was nothing new to add to the vampire genre? So, apparently, did Jarmusch, which is why Only Lovers Left Alive luxuriates in a curious end-of-an-era melancholy.”(Observer)

Possibly the funniest and certainly the coolest vampire film around.

    Love the Rex! Lovely people and enjoyed the film which I felt was a little slow with a slight lack of any real depth or emotion but also had some great surreal imagery and the idea of blood ice lollies is genius!....

    I can't make it tonight. Tables 4 and 5 are reserved in my name. We normally go in without the tickets, if there's any query just speak to the box office or call me on (07761) 533119.

    Let me know if you go for a drink afterwards and I may come and join you on my way home.

    Enjoy the film everyone.
