ImageIf any of you have ever been involved in a build, renovation, or ever had any dealings with any builders, you’ll hopefully understand that while it may not look like anything is happening – there is lots going on behind the scenes!! So for all those of you asking “what’s going on?!”, we can reassure you that we now have our main contractor, Borras, on board as well as a fantastic team of architects, structural engineers, mechanical and electrical consultants. To a large extent, the re-creation of The Odyssey is out of our hands now, and we are assured that it will be ready on time or early 2014, and no-one is more eager to see it finished than us! 

The designs are looking truly exciting and we’re hoping to even maybe post a couple of teasers in the near future.

In the meantime, can we apologise to anyone that has had trouble donating/sponsoring items at the cinema – we are well aware that there are glitches in the system and of course  want nothing to stand in the way of increasing our income to help speed up the renovation. We are looking at the issues and ways of making it easier for you to give money, so please bear with us. In the meantime, you can still give money/find out more by emailing While The Rex staff are brilliant, they aren’t all able to be kept up-to-date with Odyssey plans so please go easy on them! 

For now, The Odyssey is very much on-track and we thank you for your continuing support. 

James and the team. x
