I remember always trying to sneak upstairs to the balcony which was usually roped off. Always had excellent double features for a good price. Went there whenever the Roxy wasn’t showing anything good. The last time probably in 1984.
From the late 70’s into the late 80s, it was a classic grindhouse theatre. I saw tons of slasher / horror movies there, including Scanners, The Howling, Fear No Evil, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Prom Night, Halloween 1-3, April Fools day and many others. My most memorable time at the Roxy was seeing The Warriors with a pretty rowdy audience in late 81. When the film ended and i was leaving, a number of Guardian Angels were standing in the back of the theatre looking like they could’ve been in the film itself.
