East Nashville’s Roxy to become mixed-use venue
NASHVILLE, TN — Originally opened in 1938, the Roxy closed as a movie theater in 1960. After lying dormant for several years, it later became a recording studio. Plans now will convert it to a mixed-use music venue with some movie showings; some space will again be used as a recording studio.
The 1998 tornadoes destroyed the small studio. Solomon plans to reopen Woodland Studios as part of the Roxy Theater. The recording studio will take about 3,400 square feet of the venue’s space.
Stephanie Silverman, managing director at Belcourt Theatre, said she supports Solomon’s decision to expand the venue beyond a film house.
