The Rex was an Atmospheric style cinema which opened in 1932. It was similar to the much larger Le Grand Rex in Paris, which was by the same pairing of architect Auguste Bluysen with interior decoration by Maurice Dufrêne.

The Rex closed in December 1976. It was given the status of being listed as a National Monument, but that didn’t save the building as it was later demolished.
