Summer Season 2017

What’s new? This season we have had to revert to the same start times for both Thursdays and Fridays to avoid confusion. So many people forgot to come at the earlier time we often delayed the films! Please always remember to check the times – this season the comedy, the films with 3 course meals, the wine tasting night and Trainspotting all start at different times – you have been warned! We also have a big problem with people booking and then either cancelling at the last moment or just not turning up. The worst example happened last week, when a fully booked film screened to 9 people! It’s difficult to know exactly what to do, and we are working on a full payment system which would retain the money, at least, from people who cancel late. Until that time please could you consider donating your ticket price to the Roxy if you cancel less than 24 hours before the film screens? Many thanks, Juliet
