The Roxy is one of the smallest cinemas in England. It is a non-profit community venue in Axbridge, Somerset, and was created for fun by local volunteers in 2007, and developed over the next few years into the facility we have today. If you would like to know more about the Roxy’s background please go to the history page.
Its design was Inspired by art nouveau, art deco and midcentury modern interiors, and it is a charming venue for film as well as an increasing range of events including live music and stand-up comedy. It is now in demand for private screenings, parties and meetings. Our facilities are accessible for disabled people and include a bar. For images of the Roxy, please go to the gallery. For venue hire, please go to the ‘Rent the Roxy‘ page.
Constitutionally, it is a membership club. However, everyone is welcome, whether they are members or not. To come to the Roxy, or just to find out what we offer, please call our information and box office number on 01934 733095. Please also feel free to ask for a visit before booking.
We screen a mixed programme of film throughout the year, with breaks for Christmas, Easter and the summer holidays. The programme is chosen by the Roxy’s committee, with suggestions from members and guests – anyone can come and influence it.
Film admission charges are £3.50 for adult members, £4 for guest concessions, £3.00 for member concessions and £6 for guests. Entrance to some shows is by voluntary contribution. Annual membership is £10, though premium ‘friend’ and ‘corporate friend’ memberships, which confer certain benefits, are also available. We do encourage membership – it makes coming to the Roxy cheaper for you, and you get an online booking service, and we get vital funds, without which we would struggle to keep going – so please visit our membership page and have a look at the benefits.
We have had a lot of fun building up this project, and always welcome new talent, energy and help. You can join us by volunteering at screenings (in the bar or box office (you get to see the film for free too!), helping at the themed cafés that we run in the High Street at Axbridge’s principal events, donating even just an hour or two to our building development plans, helping with marketing (maybe putting posters up in your community), and generally contributing by bringing new ideas and skills to the team.
