Attractions Outline

The magnificent art deco NSW heritage listed Roxy Theatre, situated in the main street of Bingara, is a striking building, with a history as colourful as its painted exterior. Built in 1936 by three Greek immigrates, it operated as a cinema until 1958, after which it was closed and lay dormant and untouched for forty years. In May 2004, The Roxy was faithfully restored to its original splendour and was re-opened to the public. The theatre embraces some of the most striking original art deco architecture in New South Wales and it still contains the original fixtures and fittings, including the ornate stucco plaster, paintwork and coloured lights from 1936. Today The Roxy functions as both a multi-purpose cinema and regional centre for the performing arts and houses the Bingara Visitor Information Centre. A tour of the Roxy is unforgettable.
