The Rex's Future

  • Reinstatement of the former Rex cinema that will be open to the public, showing independent films in a relaxed environment.

  • An art deco hotel providing 140-180 rooms.

  • There will be 40-60 new jobs created on site, at least 75% for Tower Hamlets residents.

  • The restoration of the existing elements of the building, which are in desperate need of repair, particularly the former auditorium.

  • Creation of a rooftop kitchen garden to supply the cinema and restaurant on site.
