SPECIAL EVENT: WE ARE DELIGHTED TO WELCOME PAT KELMAN OF 606 DISTRIBUTION WHO WILL JOIN US TO INTRODUCE THE FILM AND TO HOLD A Q&A AFTER THE SCREENING. PAT HAS A WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND SOME GREAT STORIES ABOUT THE MAKING OF STYX.

Premiering at the Berlinale, where it opened the Panorama Special section, STYX is a work of unrelenting intensity and technical brilliance. ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern-day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. Carrying practically the entire film, Wolff is riveting as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological and moral limits.

PATRONS' CHOICE: SARAH SPEAKMAN-JONES AND LEE JONES

Housewife Nora lives with her husband, two sons and father-in-law, but if she wants to work she would require her husband’s permission. Fighting such an outmoded notion, Nora starts campaigning for women’s right to vote and becomes a hero as she overthrows the status quo. The Divine Order has delighted audiences internationally and was Switzerland’s 2018 Oscar contender.

REX IN THE PARK - A HUGE THANK YOU TO SAINSBURY'S

Sainsbury's are supporting the Rex to help raise funds for the refurbishment of the cinema toilets and bar, in order that we can provide to our customers an accessible ramp and accessible toilets - a much needed change for our community cinema.

We are privileged that for 150 days Sainsbury's are supporting The Rex as part of their amazing 150th Birthday Celebrations which will make a huge difference to us and help us to achieve our goal.

The screening at the Priory was a great success with an appreciative audience, in a stunning setting, with traditional deckchairs, retro sweets and delicious hot chocolate with marsh mallows!  What more could anyone wish for!

The team worked tirelessly throughout the day to make the event a huge success. We are most grateful and will be announcing the results of our collaboration in due course.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO SAINSBURY'S FROM THE ENTIRE REX TEAM.
