Remember going to dances at the Roxy at Page Hall in the mid 50s. Am I right in thinking that the cinema was seperate from the dance floor?

I knew someone who manned the sweet stall upstairs overlooking the dancing. No alcohol in those days!!!!

Used to frequent the Roxy in those days late 50s every Saturday night,a mate of mine and I went to any dance hall that was going dressed very splendidly in our Teddy boy outfits!.We were still at school around 1957,we had to catch a tram into the Wicker,change to the Firth Park tram dropping off outside the Cannon Hall Fir Vale where we knocked a few jars back and then walked on to the Roxy,we loved it!.It was always packed with plenty of nice females,we had lots of friends there who we only met there and nowhere else,we never had any trouble ever only going to enjoy ourselves!.There was always a nervous hour in the Cannon due to frequent Police visits looking for under age drinkers,we never got pulled even though we were only 14years old,they used to be very keen on that in those days not so much now how times change!.

Never bothered looking all we went there for was the dance hall,on Google maps there are two entrances so maybe one is the cinema!.

The club was also in TheFull Monty movie. They painted it that colour just for the film. It was the same furniture store/warehouse back then too.

It was indeed The Cannon Hall, I spent many a night in there.  We started off in Firth Park Club on Idsworth road, then down to the Cannon Hall and then up to the Toll Gate at Pitsmoor. If only I had a time machine I would do it all again.
