The Roxy Theater first opened on December 6, 1915 at 21 East Diamond Avenue. It had 500 seats on one floor and began as the Savoy Theater. When it first opened it hosted both vaudeville acts and films, but gradually changed over to all movies.
In 1918 the theater became the Pleasure Parlor and was operated by the Hersker family who also operated the Hersker Theater in West Hazleton.
In the early 1930’s it became the Roxy and often showed films catering to the Italian community. It operated until 1945 and was converted into retail space. The theater building and others in the block were destroyed by fire in the mid 1990’s.
