Originally the Oddfellows Hall and built in 1889 it provided various entertainments such as the travelling theatre shows, banquets, concerts etc. - possibly visiting Bioscope shows were presented prior to World War 1. During the Great War Wareham folk used the Garrison Cinema at Worgret, just west of Wareham, but later this venue closed and no local cinema existed until the Empire Theatre opened in the Oddfellows Hall in 1920.
The Rex Bar was added in the Oddfellows Meeting Room in 2003 and the Rex is now among the few cinemas in the UK where it is possible to have a glass of wine or beer whilst watching the film!
