Roxy Theatre Leeton - currently closed for renovations.
Update on Roxy operations - The Leeton Roxy Theatre is currently closed for ongoing refurbishing works. Estimated to reopen in 2023.
The Roxy in Leeton is an art deco building and was opened in 1930 as a cinema and a stage was added in 1933. The Roxy film screen is one of the largest roll-up mechanised screens in Australia measuring approximately 16 metres wide by eight metres high.
The Roxy is a fine example of an Inter-war cinema designed in a modified Art Deco architectural style with Art Nouveau and Spanish Mission elements. The building is constructed of brick walls, with the primary facade rendered, the roof clad in corrugated iron and timber floors.
The theatre has a full size concert stage with the original two levels of seating, a foyer and ticket box area and an integrated shop at the west side. Large red neon lettering for "Roxy" is mounted above the roof parapet in three directions, plus extensive neon lighting on the front facade.
The Roxy is one of a small number of two level cinemas in New South Wales, and is a State heritage Listed Building. It is a multi-function centre combining concert, live theatre, films and community events with a capacity in excess of 600 seats.
