Film Club at the Roxy

Film Club at the Roxy is a non-profit-making venture. It was formed in 1989 by a small group of Ulverston film enthusiasts, inspired by the late Gwyneth Walker. We retain the club’s original aim to show recent quality films from around the world – films you do not often find in mainstream cinemas – to a South Lakeland audience .


Film Club at the Roxy is currently not running due to covid-19 We are not taking memberships for the 2020-21 season. We intend to return, probably for the 2021-22 season.

However the Roxy cinema is open, & would appreciate your support at this difficult time.

The following measures are in place:

  • seating capacity reduced to 80 to observe social distancing
  • one-way system to and from the auditorium
  • perspex screens at the pay desk and sweet counter
  • staff wear gloves and masks
  • hand-sanitising at entrance and two points in the foyer
  • door handles and surfaces disinfected during show
  • seats sprayed at the end of the night

On-line booking is also now available and there is now hot water in the Ladies Toilet
