Located in the outer Leicester district of Oadby. The Oadby Cinema opened in 1937 with Will Hay in "Good Morning Boys". It was built for and operated by the brothers George & Milford Cockroft, owners of the Magna Cinema, Wigston Magna, the Lawn Cinema, Birstall and the Fosse Cinema, Leicester.
The centre of the facade had a slim tower feature centrally located, which carried the name of the cinema. Inside the auditorium, seating was provided in stalls and circle levels.
The Oadby Cinema closed in 1981 with Burt Reynolds in "The Cannonball Run". It was converted into an undertakers/funeral home by A.J. Adkinson & Son, who were already operating from a building next to the cinema. The original Art Deco style facade has now been modified beyond recognition.
