Enjoy our charming 1950s country picture show atmosphere with the latest 21st century cinema technology!
The Roxy Cinema is situated in the historic 1926 School of Arts Community Hall at the beach end of Gregory Street, 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 Roxy Cinema operates all year round on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and every day on ALL public and school holidays. All our films are presented with digital projection and brand new, improved digital surround sound. The Roxy screens current major Hollywood releases as well as specialising in art-house titles from around the world. The Roxy also regularly hosts live music and theatre shows!
The Roxy is now owned by Garry (Gaz) Farrar. Gaz is at many Roxy sessions to introduce the movie and chat to patrons as they enter and exit. Come check out the 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 Roxy is also fully licenced. Enjoy a beer or wine while you watch the latest movies!
The Roxy Cinema is a “must see” attraction when you visit South West Rocks.
