With its beautiful Art Deco design and grand interior, The Roxy Community Theatre is one of the oldest cinemas in Australia. Opened in the heyday era of film, the iconic Leeton landmark is steeped in history – and its charm, elegance and ambiance continue to be drawcards today. The Leeton community loves The Roxy – and visitors to Leeton do, too!
Located in the heart of Leeton, the heritage-listed theatre has one of the largest roll-up mechanised screens in Australia – measuring approximately 11 metres wide by 5 metres high – and is one of a very small number of two-level cinemas in New South Wales. The Roxy is a valued and vital part of the local culture, like it has from the beginning.
The Roxy opened on 7 April 1930 – a grand occasion, where the capacity audience enjoyed a screening of The Black Watch. The theatre was named after the largest picture theatre in the world, The Roxy Theatre in New York. Today, it’s a multi-function centre featuring regular movie screenings, live theatre and entertainment, and is a versatile event space.
