NORTHAMPTON, PA — I would like to bring to everyones attention a website called RetroRoadMaps that I think most of those who visit here would enjoy exploring. It lists wonderful nostalgic places including historic theatres.

I was recently visited by Beth Lennon who hosts the site, and she did a fabulous write up and picture presentation about our theatre, the Roxy.

While the many photos posted here over the years by others have done a great job of showing the theatre as it is, nothing truly exhibits the splendor of the marquee until you see it lit up with its flashers and chashers operating, showing off its true theatrical character. A video is posted along with the article about the theatre on RetroRoadmap. If you wish to see it I would suggest that you go there, and while there check out all the other wonderful places as well.

Below are links to the stories about the theatre.

Rick,

Thanks so much for the links to my articles about the wonderful Roxy Theatre in Northampton, it truly is a gem and I’m so glad I get to share it with my RetroRoadmap.com Readers!

If any Cinema Treasures folks want to add a theatre to the Retro Roadmap I’d love to add them. They need to be open and operating, so folks can go support them, and hopefully a good architectural example of why we want to save these historic structures and not tear them down.

Email me a photo and a description of the theatre ( my contact info is here http://retroroadmap.com/contact-retro-roadmap/ ) and thanks for checking out Retro Roadmap! I hope it puts some people in the seats of these fabulous movie palaces!
