Located in Shirebrook, Derbyshire. The Town Hall was built in 1909, and the hall inside the building was soon in use as a cinema. In 1930 it was equipped with a British Thomsom Houston(BTH) sound system.

Around 1950/1951 the Town Hall was taken over by the Leeds based Star Cinemas chain, and they re-named in Roxy Cinema. The Roxy Cinema was closed around 1966/1967. It was converted into offices for the Bolsover District Council. The auditorium has since been demolished and the site is used as a car park.

The photo and position are slightly out, the Roxy was further up the hill on the right hand side just before The Great Northern pub set back off the road, it is now demolished and the site is the Shires Medical Centre car park.

A small square was formed at the side of the Great Northern pub and the cinema entrance which was small mock Greek with 2 columns from recollection fronted this square with the auditorium going to the right behind the terraced shops. I remember as a 9 year old all the Sat club minors being told off by the manager because someone had thrown a chock ice at the screen the previous week.
