It originally opened in 1933 as 3520-seater cinema on the site of what was previously a brewery. Being such a grand and decorative building, it cost £250,000 to build and took several years to complete.
It reopened in 1963 and became the home to the London Opera Centre. It then became Mecca Bingo in the 1980s, but then the company decided to go online in 2005, forcing the Troxy to close once again.
The venue was reopened again in 2006 and has stayed open since, hosting a huge variety of events ranging from film screenings, gigs and prestigious award ceremonies.
