The theater was completely gutted and expanded. The interior was completely changed. What was a movie theater only (had no real stage or dressing rooms) now has a full stage and primarily serves as a playhouse with movies taking a backseat.

Lost Memory: Your photo is recent enough that “Fracture” is playing. LOVE that this theater is back in business for both films and plays.

The Roxy Theater has a new website! They also are showing movies, holding concerts, and starting June 7th, 2006 will do professional, live summer stock theater.

For more info like showtimes and ticket prices visit their website, The theater is located close to Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier, so its a great thing to do after a day of sightseeing and touring.

It is amazing how many theatres are named ROXY in imitation of the once famous name of the New York City panjandrum of the movie palace: Samual Lionel Rothapfel = “Roxy”. His namesake was the famous ROXY THEATRE in NYC, which outlasted him by only 25 years when it was demolished in 1960. The whole story is in that landmark book “The Best Remaining Seats: The Story of the Golden Age of the Movie Palace” by the late Ben M. Hall in 1961. Various editions of it are sometimes available from, but only the first edition contains the color plates.

The Roxy Theater in Morton, WA has been purchased by the Fire Mountain Arts Council and is in the process of being brought back to life. The organization is a non-profit group whose plans include developing a community theater, with live performances, concerts, movies, etc.

I am so glad to see this happening and I hope more old, unused theaters can be brought back to their former glory.

Theater is located at 213 Main Street in downtown Morton. Projection & sound equipment are intact and operational.

Building is in need of a paint job and sections of neon tubing are broken out of the Roxy sign.

Theater was built in the 1930’s and closed around 1984.
