Enjoy our charming 1950s country picture show atmosphere with the latest 21st century cinema technology!
The South West Roxy Cinema is situated in the historic 1926 School of Arts Community Hall at the beach end of Gregory St, South West Rocks.
The Roxy is one of the last operating examples of the country picture shows which operated in almost every country town before the advent of television. Often screening just once or twice each week, a picture show man would ride into town and set up his projector to show movies, cartoons and newsreels. No wonder it was the social centre of every country town during that era.
Today, the South West Roxy Cinema operates all year round on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays plus ALL public and school holidays. All our films are presented with digital projection and brand new, improved digital surround sound, while selected titles are presented in 3D by Real D. The Roxy screens current major Hollywood releases as well as specialising in arthouse titles from around the world.
The Roxy is now owned by TV and Film Historian Andrew Mercado, who may be familiar to viewers of Channel [V] and Nine Network shows as A Current Affair and Kerrie-Anne. Andrew is at every session to introduce the movie and chat to patrons as they exit. Come check out his framed movie posters which now adorn the walls of The Roxy and enjoy the new deckchair and bean bag seating.
So, take a trip down memory lane and come visit this boutique cinema. Enjoy the freshly made popcorn, lollies, coffee, tea and cold drinks, and our hand-made choc top ice creams from the Snack Bar.
The South West Roxy Cinema is a “must see” attraction when you visit South West Rocks.
