Font from LE REX in Nogent-le-Rotrou (France)'s logo.

See the picture attached : it's the logo of the movie theatre Le REX owned by the city of Nogent-le-Rotrou. I'm looking to recreate a much higher resolution version of the logo and would need to find the appropriate font. You can reverse google-search it to find a few websites (including ours) using it, but it's mostly a dead-end.

Some ideas, clues, notes :

- Clearly the whole image seems to be using two fonts since the vertical "CINÉMA" uses a different E (no rounded edges..) from the "REX" and "LE" or "NOGENT" texts. At a minimum I need to ID the one used for the REX logo (with the fairly distinctive R and E designs).

This logo would have been designed in ~2010, presumably contracted out by the city as their in-house designer at the time does remember being sent a design brief and is certain he had no part in it. On the other hand, I wouldn't really expect it to be fully custom work seeing as city is unlikely to have shelled out a lot of money for this..

Any lead whatsoever is fine, including commercial fonts obv. 

Thank you so much :)

I doubt this is particularly useful but here it is, cut in giant metal letters on the facade of the theatre :Nogent-le-Rotrou_-_Cin%C3%A9ma_Rex.JPG

Maybe the "cinéma", different from the logo above, uses the same font this time around? No clue if this helps or makes the search worse haha.

Hey! Thank you very much for the suggestions. Mittelschrift is actually what I had ended up with using one of those automated tools online. So you reckon it was - at least in part - a custom job?
