Dropped in on the newly renovated Roxy the other day – fantastic decore and atmosphere.

It felt very 1930s. I guess with a creative group who have honed their skills creating the right feel for films, a small theatre was never going to be a problem. They have successfully recreated some of the 30s film magic.

It also felt very welcoming – the building impressed, it did not intimidate. Upstairs was a most impressive ceiling mural and statutes; downstairs: lightfittings. The theatre wasn’t open, but I will definitely go to a film there.

CoCo the cafe/bar/restaurant – located on the ground floor foyer – was very nice too. The decore was in keeping with the period – as were the staff uniforms. The staff were also very friendly and accomodating.

Great place to drop by for a bit of a pickme up – in spirit or to re-fuel. I can see an ever increasing number of tourists dropping in; the renovation also restored the outside to a 30s architecture. People were photographing both the interior and exterior.
