Wetherby Film Theatre

Wetherby Film Theatre


Wetherby Film Theatre is a one screen cinema run by local film enthusiasts.

The cinema opened in 1915 as the Ruby and at that time 260 people could cram in to the auditorium to see the latest silent movies. When the talkies came along the building had to be extended so they could house the speaker equipment.

It later became the Rodney, named after the son of a director of the Star Cinema group who bought the Wetherby venue and added it to their chain of cinemas. The cinema can now seat 135 people in comfy, tipping seats.

Screenings change regularly and include popular Hollywood movies as well as foreign films and children's features.
