Roxy Cinema

Located in Shirebrook, Derbyshire. The Town Hall was built in 1909, and the hall inside the building was soon in use as a cinema. In 1930 it was equipped with a British Thomsom Houston(BTH) sound system.

Around 1950/1951 the Town Hall was taken over by the Leeds based Star Cinemas chain, and they re-named in Roxy Cinema. The Roxy Cinema was closed around 1966/1967. It was converted into offices for the Bolsover District Council. The auditorium has since been demolished and the site is used as a car park.

A small square was formed at the side of the Great Northern pub and the cinema entrance which was small mock Greek with 2 columns from recollection fronted this square with the auditorium going to the right behind the terraced shops. I remember as a 9 year old all the Sat club minors being told off by the manager because someone had thrown a chock ice at the screen the previous week.
