The Victoria/Albany as The Roundabout Club in April 2004

In 1906 the Town Hall was opened in Sandy, which contained at first floor level an auditorium. This was converted to the town’s cinema in 1920 and remained in this use, called the Victory Cinema

It seated around 400 and had a proscenium width of 25 feet. In 1928 it was operated by Mr. A. Hill and later run by Cox Cinema Co. who were based at the Regal Biggleswade. The Victory Cinema was damaged by a fire in 1948. It was repaired and re-opened as the Albany Cinema in July 1950, operated by K. George Randall of Potton. The Albany Cinema was closed in the early-1960’s. Later in the 1960’s it was occasionally used by the Sandy Film Society.

The building still stands and is now known as the Roundabout Club, which promotes occasional live concerts in the former cinema.
