Venue InformationTroxy has been helping East London have a good time since 1933 and has no intention of stopping now.
In that year, when Troxy first opened as the UK’s biggest cinema, things were done with a sense of style, like the staff wearing evening dress and spraying perfume during film showings.
London was very different then. There was no Victoria Line, Hitler was preparing to do his worst to the city, Abbey Road Studios had just opened and Battersea Power Station was a mere two years old.
But some things haven’t changed. A night out at Troxy was a unique treat then and it still is today – a striking art deco building from the outside that doesn't let up once you're on the inside either. Even the carpet has an art deco fan pattern running through it!
Sure, the building has changed a bit – for the better – and you won’t have perfume sprayed on you, but Troxy remains committed to giving its customers an extraordinary experience.
Currently there are no events for the Troxy London .
490 Commercial Road,
By TrainOh so simple. Troxy is 200 metres from Limehouse Station, which is on the DLR and the C2C line from Fenchurch Street Station to Essex. When arriving at Limehouse, leave via the Bekesbourne Street exit. You can pick up the DLR line from Bank (Central/Circle/Northern and Waterloo & City lines), Tower Hill (Circle/District Line) and Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line). Limehouse is only two stops (6 minutes) from these three stations.

Local streets have residents’ parking zones and Troxy likes its neighbours – so would ask anyone looking for a parking space to respect them. The venue falls into Tower Hamlets controlled parking zone C4 – latest information can be found here. There is a 24-hour car park next to Cineworld at West India Quay, run by Indigo Park Services. From there, you can get a taxi or catch the DLR at West India Quay (two stops).
The nearest hotel, the Holiday Inn Express at Limehouse, is just 300 metres away and has secure parking. Troxy recommends booking in advance at justpark.com. You can take a chance and turn up on the day, but you’re not guaranteed a space that way.
Troxy has an accessible area, and also offers a number of ‘PA goes free’ tickets on a first come first served basis. Due to the design of Troxy, space is limited, so we would encourage disabled patrons to contact the venue as soon as possible to arrange.
