REXKL was born out of our desire and courage to reimagine a community space in the heart of the city — where individuals and groups of diverse backgrounds meet and build connections. With the pandemic taking away the physical aspect of this desire, we are proud to see it’s kept alive digitally.

Imagine your COVID-19 lockdown without Youtube. We were entertained with quirky comedy videos, discovered new songs & singers, expanded our theatre & performance viewing, visited museums and galleries globally, listened as others shared their thoughts during this unprecedented time together.

How about the lockdown without Spotify, Netflix, or even TikTok? Sounds scary? We think so too.

Artistes and creative-types are an essential part of society's fabric, and have kept many of us sane and comforted during this pandemic, yet the creative industry has been one of the hardest hit with thousands losing their jobs in the blink of an eye.

“As a creative community hub, REXKL continues to support the local arts industry with any means available to us. Even if we cannot be the space where the audience interacts with the artist in our space, we are bringing the artist to the audience”, explains Shin Chang, co-founder of REXKL.

Which is why REXKL is celebrating the creative arts with ​REXKL Sessions,a 9-episode series airing every Thursday (starting 2nd July 2020), 9:00pm on AirAsia REDTIX.

Sami El Hadery, CEO of AirAsia RedTix remarks, “We believe live entertainment is the best way to give back to our communities. Together with a unique and historic space such as REXKL, we believe a collaboration such as this will assist with the recovery of the Arts Industry post MCO.”

Featuring performers like Otam, Nadhira, Helloluqman, SHN, Kavin Jay & Papi Zak, Darren Teh (An Honest Mistake), Wanted Symphony, Prakash Daniel, RESORT, and Monoriff; each episode will be free to air and we ask that you generously support the performers with donations.

We have all been entertained and benefited from the arts in this difficult time, and this is just our way of saying "Thank You".

About REXKL

REXKL, previously the iconic Rex Cinema, aims to give 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.

If you’d like to make a donation to any of the artists or REXKL then please feel free to do so as every little helps. You can make a donation here: Support Your Local Artists & Venue
