The Roxy can be partially seen in this 1949 photo.

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.

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.

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.

It was closed by 1954 according to the phone book.
