Movies

What is showing this week?

How do I find current showtimes?
You can find our current movie and showtimes in several different ways: On our website rex2theater.com, on our Facebook Page, on our marquee, or simply by calling our movieline (580)367-2000.

How do I find out what’s coming up?
You can find our tentative upcoming schedule on the “Schedule” section of our website…rex2theater.com.

Why does your schedule change sometimes?
We try to plan out our upcoming schedule in advance. We may have a general idea what we will have on a certain day, but we don’t know for sure what we will have until earlier in the week. In other words, we typically find out on Tuesday or Wednesday what we will have on Friday. It’s always a good idea to call or check the website to confirm times on the day.

Why do you show movies at different times? Why aren’t they the same time every day, every week?
We schedule movies depending on the length of the movie. We do that to help keep our costs down. The less we have to heat/cool the theater, the lower our utility bills.

You schedule said you had (insert movie title here) this week, but when I came on Friday it had already left. What up with that?
Movies run Friday – Thursday. That means our movies change on Friday, and Thursday is the last day of the movie’s scheduled run.

When will you get (insert movie title here)?
We typically get movies 3-4 weeks after movies are released widely. Sometimes we get them a little later. We rarely get movies the week they open.

Why don’t you get movies the week they open?
There are restrictions that are out of our control including a minimum of weeks we’d have to show it. It’s just not practical for us to show the same movie for several weeks.  

Why did you not get (insert movie title here)?
Being a one-screen theater, we have to make some tough decisions sometimes. Unfortunately, we can’t get every movie.

Do you show movies in 3D?
No.

Can’t you show two movies a week?
In some circumstances, yes. It’s not always practical for us to do so.

Why do you show so many kids’ movies?
Frankly, because kids’ movies do very well for us. We do try to mix it up, but we are at the mercy of the studios’ release schedules. Typically they release a lot of kids’ movies during the summer, so we do tend to have a higher number during summer months.

Why don’t you show more (horror/westerns/comedies/R movies…insert movie genre here) movies?
We do try to mix it up, but we are at the mercy of the studios’ release schedules and we have to make some tough decisions sometimes. We also know historically what movies are well-received in our community so we try to give priority to those movies.

Is this movie suitable for my child?
We can’t answer that for you. Only you know your child.

Where can I find out if this movie is suitable for my child?
Check the box. Most posters have a ratings box that will tell you what you can expect. You can also find rating information on the Internet. If you want more detailed information…On the Internet Movie Database website (imdb.com) you can search for movies and find a lot of information. One section called “Parents Guide” has comments from others who have seen the movies that include things that might be questionable for children. There may be spoilers in that section, so be warned.

If we call ahead, can you reserve a seat for us?
No. Our seats are first-come, first-served. If someone from your group comes early they are welcome to save seats for you.

If we call ahead, can you reserve tickets for us?
No. Our tickets are also first-come, first-served. It’s unfair for us to hold tickets for someone who may not show up.

Do you have spots for wheelchairs?
Yes. On the aisle-end of our back and front rows there is space for wheelchairs. (If the trashcan is in the way of where you’d like to sit, we can move it for you.)

Can we park our wheelchair at the end of any of the other rows?
Sorry, but no. The chair will block the aisle which is a fire hazard, and will also prevent wheelchair access for others.

I’ve already seen this movie, and other movies that you have coming up on your schedule. Can I speak about them in the Rex II and give away key plot points?
Okay. No one really asks that, but it needs to be addressed. We realize that since we get movies a few weeks after the wide release, you may have already seen it. We just ask that you keep in mind that our theater is full of many people who have NOT seen it. So please be respectful and keep our lobby and our theater SPOILER FREE.


Movie Ratings

Is this movie suitable for my child?
We can’t answer that for you. Only you know your child.

One section called “Parents Guide” has comments from others who have seen the movies that include things that might be questionable for children. There may be spoilers in that section, so be warned.

This movie had terrible language/violence/etc., why didn’t you warn me?
Everyone has different taste in movies. It’s really up to the movie-goer to decide if they want to watch a movie. You can find out more about ratings on the Internet.

Why did you let my child see a PG13 movie without me?
The only rating that is restricted is “R”. We can’t technically turn away under 13s for PG13 movies.


How old do you have to be to see an “R” rated movie?
17. If you are under 17 and wish to attend an “R” rated movie, we require that you are accompanied by a parent or a guardian who is at least 21 years old.

My child has permission to see “R” rated movies. What do I need to do so you will let them in?
Come with them. At least until they get through the ticket line. Otherwise, we won’t let them in. Please don’t call and tell us to let your child in.


Posters

Why didn’t you show the movie on the date on the poster?
Studios create marketing material based on the wide release date. We typically get movies about 3 weeks after movies are released widely.

Why isn’t this movie in 3D? It says it’s in 3D on the poster.
Studios create marketing material. We don’t have any control over what is printed on the posters. Often they will advertise technology (3D/IMAX) that does not apply to all theaters.

Can I have/buy old posters?
Buy? No. Have…? Possibly. It depends on the studio of the movie. We can’t sell them. We may be able to give them away. Sometimes we have to trash/destroy them.

Come on.  Can’t you make an exception for me? Who’s going to know?
Nope. With social media, the world is extremely small now. Just a throwaway post on Facebook could flag us. And we really can’t put our ability to get movies or marketing at risk.

Can I tell what’s coming up next by looking at the posters you have on display?
Sort of. The poster behind the Box Office register is typically the next movie we will have. The rest of the “Coming Soon” posters are mostly random.


Previews

Why didn’t you get that movie on the date that was in the movie trailer?
Studios create marketing material based on the wide release date. We typically get movies about 3 weeks after movies are released widely.

Why isn’t this movie in 3D? It said it would be in 3D in the trailer.
Studios create marketing material. We don’t have any control over what is in the trailers. Often they will advertise technology (3D/IMAX) that does not apply to all theaters.

You showed the trailer for (insert movie title here) one time. Why didn’t you show the movie?
It happens. We try to only show trailers for movies we intend to show, but schedules can change due to availability.


Concessions

Do you allow outside food or drink?
No. We do not. If you have a special circumstance such as an allergy, please let us know and we can work with you on it. Otherwise, we ask that you please leave all food or drink outside. 

How can I help make getting snacks easier on everyone?
There are several things you can do. Complete all cell phone conversations (including texts) before you come to the counter. Please know your order before you get to the counter. If you are still uncertain, please hang back and let others ahead of you. You can also clear the counter as soon as you can to allow the person behind you to order. We have straws, napkins and salt on the back bar to help with this. Also please fill our your tickets for the drawings using the pens on the back bar. Don’t fill them out at the Snack Bar.

Why did you raise your prices?
We keep our prices as reasonable as we possibly can. That said, we do need to raise prices from time to time to offset increased prices of our goods.

Why do you not sell tickets and snacks at the same register? It would be faster if you did both at both registers.
We keep the Box Office separate from the Snack Bar for several reasons. It may seem like it would be faster to combine it, but it’s not. Trust us.

Can we help to keep your prices low?
Yes! In many ways...
Do not bring in outside food or drink.
Pick up your trash as you leave.
Use only as much of our complimentary items (napkins, straws, salt, wet-naps etc.) as you need.
Please aim well and flush the toilets in the restrooms.
Tell your friends!


Theater Rental

Can we buy out a single showing for our group?
If you’d like to buy out a showing, we’d prefer it was not one of our regular showtimes. We can set up a private showing instead.

Can we rent the theater for private showing?
Yes. You can find that information on our website. You can also ask for a printout of the information at the Snack Bar.

Can we rent the theater for a birthday party?
Yes. You can find that information on our website. You can also ask for a printout of the information at the Snack Bar.


During the movie

What can we do to make the movie experience enjoyable for everyone?
Simply…just be respectful. Any extra light or noise inside the theater can ruin the experience for others. So be mindful of how you might be impacting the movie-going experience for others.
Please:  keep your voices down, keep your phones/tablets and other electronic devices turned OFF, don’t wear glow-in-the-dark or light-up clothing or jewelry, keep the theater door shut, do not stand up for longer than is necessary.

Someone is talking very loudly, what can I do about that?
If someone or something is disturbing the movie, please let us know and we will address it.


Cell Phone/Tablet/Other Technology Policy

Can we use cell phone/tablets during the movie?
No.

But I’ll keep the sound off…
No.

And I’ll keep it really dark…
No.

What if I’m expecting an important phone call?
Then you might think about postponing your trip to the movies until at time you can fully enjoy it. You could also have the person call the theater number. If you tell us where you are sitting ahead of time, we can come get you.

My phone has a light that flashes when I get a message, is that okay?
No. Please turn your phone completely off.

What if we use our phone/tablet during the movie?
We’ll notify you to turn it off one time. The next time, you’ll be asked to leave with no refund.

I see someone using a phone and it’s very distracting. What can I do?
If someone or something is disturbing the movie, please let us know and we will address it.

My child has shoes that light up, can he/she wear them in the theater?
Please don’t wear any light-up clothing or jewelry. It can be very distracting in a dark theater.

Why are you so strict about this?
Because people go to the movies to get lost in the story take a break from the “real world” in the darkness of the theater. Anymore, there are so few places you can go and enjoy things uninterrupted by the world of phones and tablets. It’s important to us that our theater is one of those places.


Payment

What forms of payment do you take?
Cash is preferred, but we will take checks. We do have a $25 service fee on returned checks.

So…you don’t take cards?
No. We do not take cards. Debit or credit.


General Rex II Theater

Why don’t you do the wall signing anymore?
We were running out of space, and it was going to have to stop sometime. We decided that the 15 year anniversary was a good stopping point.

How old is the theater?
The current theater has been open since 2000. It was open (as the Rex Theater) in the 40s, 50s & 60s. It closed in the late 60s.

You were cleaning when we got here and we couldn’t go right in. Why don’t you add in more time between movies?
We schedule movies depending on the length of the movie. We do that to help keep our costs down. The less we have to heat/cool the theater, the lower our utility bills.

Someone started cleaning during the credits. Are you trying to rush us out?
Absolutely not! We respect the entire movie and we are credit-watchers, too. We are just trying to get a jump-start on cleaning for the next group. We will always try to stay out of your line of vision, and as quiet as possible.

What do you do if no one shows up for a showtime?
If there are no patrons 15 minutes after the posted start time, we may close and reopen for the next showing. If we do, we will reopen 45 minutes before the next show time.

I saw a bug.
It happens. We do exterminate regularly to prevent pests, but they do sneak in from time to time.

I saw a lizard.
His name is Dobby. He’s friendly. Please don’t scare him.

Do you allow pets?
No. Except for service animals.

But what about Dobby?
Dobby is a free lizard.
