REXKL Cinema Hall Event Space
REXKL Cinema Hall Event Space is located on Jalan Sultan and commissioned before the Japanese occupation, the original building was opened on 28th July 1947. However, it burned down during a failed burglary attempt in 1972. After it was rebuilt in 1976, RexKL Cinema housed a single screen theatre that could seat over a thousand people. It was operated by the Shaw Brothers, and later on by Golden Screen Cinemas before shutting its doors in 2002. After being converted into a backpacker hostel, another fire gutted the building in 2007. REXKL Cinema Hall Event Space aims to give the cinema and the surrounding community a new lease on life by repurposing the disused building as a space for events, theatre, exhibitions, performances, screenings, library facilities, workshops, retail, and F&B. The upgrades and reassignment of space within the building will work hard, not just to be aesthetically pleasing, but also useful to the community. REXKL Event Space is focused on giving the old, beloved building another chance at a future rather than tearing it down and starting anew.
Event Space – Cinema Hall
The building’s structure of REXKL Event Space has been untouched. Hence the event space remains the same structure as when it was the cinema hall of the Rex Cinema. They’ve maintained it’s raw feel and kept it bare – in order for event organisers to use the space and transform it for their event. Apart from the event space, they also have F&B outlets and retail shops and not your typical bare venue!
