changes to the Victorian Covid 19 restrictions.
Due to a number of factors it is not viable for the Rex to
return to operation just yet.
With Hollywood withholding new film releases until the world
market is stronger, the reduction in the number of attendees,
and with concern for the safety of our patrons and volunteers,
the Rex Board is undertaking a month by month review of the
situation and will keep the community informed through updates
on our digital media platforms and through local press outlets.
While we regret the ongoing delay and understand the community’s
desire to return to normality, it is essential that continued health
compliance and availability of product are in hand before we re-open.
We thank you for your patience, and look forward to soon
welcoming you back to the Rex.
in accordance with the Federal Government's directive
in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rex will close
from 12 midday March 23 until further notice.
The health and safety of our patrons and volunteering staff are of primary concern for us. We work hard to ensure that the cinema is a healthy and safe environment. The situation is being monitored and the Rex Theatre will act promptly on advice from the Australian Government Department of Health and in response to any directive from the Victorian Government.
In line with advice from the Australian Government Department of Health, at this stage it is not necessary to close the cinema, therefore we will continue to have regular sessions and operate as normal. We are taking care to be extra diligent by implementing the measures below at this time:
- Hand sanitiser provided for patrons and the volunteers staffing the Rex
- Spacing of patrons in the cinema
- Disinfecting surfaces in public spaces between sessions
- Asking staffing volunteers and patrons with symptoms to stay home
