Wondering how the gutting of the Rex is progressing? So are we. If you peep through the wooden hoarding you’ll see a sea of iron mesh awaiting a concrete pour.

Eight months ago !!!!!! this self same rear angle shot of the Rex showed virtually no difference. (See The Wrecks.) Have the geniuses who ruined one of the great regional cinemas run out of cash?

 “They are taking their time,” was one comment from someone in the know. Apparently a bit of electrical work was done last week.

This is the second Daylesford icon vacillating at the mercy of people who can’t see beyond the bottom line. What sort of completion clauses does council insert in the construction permits? Demolition sure was swift. 

You can apparently rip the guts out of anything you want, then let your handiwork rot.

Stalag Rex today (and for the past 8 months)
