Rex Cinema in Petaling Street…no more

Today all the olden design cinemas are replaced by cineplexes- where it is more comfortable ….and pricey. But what is that RM11- most important is the experience and comfort.

Olden cinemas like REX, Odeon cannot compete with the new cineplexes and most of these buildings have been torn down and either converted to car parks or high rise building.

Below is what used to be the REX Cinema located in KL Chinatown. It is now converted to some kind of very low budget hotel called Hotel Red Dragon:

Those days when I was a child, the REX cinema were jam packed with people when there is a blockbuster being shown. Now, the building looked so old and it is resting on prime land.
