Roxy Picture House

A Memory of Bradford

I too, have fond and happy memories of the Roxy. I was born just down the road in Garnet Street in 1938 and went to Barkerend School leaving in 1953. I remember on a Saturday morning going with a few mates, we would take it in turn for just one of us to pay, they would then open the back door and we would sneak in (sorry about that). We only got one a small amount of pocket money in them days, in my teens I would take my girlfriend there, she has now been my wife for 51 years. I now live in Sutton-in-Craven, but still remember those happy days at the Roxy. I was known as Bob Chippendale at school.
