The Rex Theatre, venue for our play (Experimental Stage in the Basement)
The Rex Cinema was built between 1935 and 1937, opening in 1937. It is a large cinema, and was located next to the (now demolished) Art Deco style Titania Cinema. The interior was decorated by Greek painters Yiannis Tsarouchis and his assistant Yiannis Palaiologas, who specialised in modern Greek figurative painting. It now houses two stages and many resources of the Greek National Theatre.
I have felt privileged to be working every day in this beautiful building. The whole area is vitalized by it and pulled upwards out of the dreck of nearby Omonia.
