The Roxy’s final attraction— without support from a stage show— opened on March 9th, 1960, and ran through the theatre’s closing night of March 29th.

Although the Roxy had introduced CinemaScope and Cinemiracle to the movie-going public, its final feature movie was not in any particular wide screen process. Some reference books claim that the British-made “The Wind Cannot Read” had an aspect ratio of 1:66 to 1, but I don’t know if the Roxy stuck to that or enlarged on it. I presume that some short subjects were added, and perhaps a trailer or two for Radio City Music Hall, which was under the same management as the Roxy.

Two days after the Roxy closed forever, RCMH opened its Easter Holiday Show, with “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” on the screen.
