A small club with an original cinema seating of 894, the Surbiton Roxy cinema opened in 1911 as the Coronation Hall. The exterior which is shown below had an interesting structure, with towers flanking the entrance. Internally it had floral motifs, and a barrel vaulted ceiling.

It had a couple of name changes until it closed as a cinema in 1966 when it was converted into a bingo club. After its closure it took the turn of a nudist club which is probably quite a rarity for a bingo hall. (Imagine the two purposes mixed!). It has since been ‘Weatherspooned’.
