This was another Mike Barovic-owned theater in Puyallup. I am unsure where it was located in town, and I do not know when it opened or closed.

I do know that the Roxy and the Liberty were around at the same time, and the Roxy was open in the 1930s.

Both the Roxy Theater and the Liberty Theater were listed as operating in Film Daily Yearbook’s that I have, editions 1941-1950. The Roxy had a seating capacity of 300.

The Liberty Theater, located at 114 W. Main Street had a capacity of 750.

It was closed by 1954 according to the phone book.

Was this at 109 S. Meridian? It had been the Giggling Greek and now it’s Bagel Boyz?

The exterior of the building CLEARLY looks like it used to be a theater.

Katie Mac, I emailed the City of Puyallup in hopes that they can provide a correct street address. I agree with you that the building just to the right of the Giggling Greek (via Google maps) looks like it could have been a theatre. I will post back if/when I hear anything.

The Roxy Theater was located on Meridian just north of Pioneer Way about 1/3 of a block. There was Bunn’s Pharmacy, then Martin’s Confectionery, then the Roxy. It only ran westerns, Superman, Cisco Kid, none of the shows the Liberty ran.

The Roxy can be partially seen in this 1949 photo.
