ABOUT THE HALL:

The Rex Theatre in Charlton is an original Arc Deco masterpiece, providing cinema and live performance for rural communities in the north western region of Victoria since 1938.

The Rex is a working theatre museum, celebrating the golden age of cinema and its ongoing place in our lives. Owned by the community since 2008, it is fully run and operated by dedicated volunteers from the Charlton and surrounding communities of the Buloke region.

2011’s devastating floods saw the lower level of The Rex completely under water. Once again, the community rallied to The Rex’s side. With the help of philanthropic donations, they restored and improved the theatre, which continues to serve at the heart of the local community.
