Here is a recent picture. The image is not the best, unfortunately.

It looks like this building is currently being used as a nightclub for people with mental illness or disability. There’s an interesting article about this here:—137487468/162769.html

Also, here’s a photograph of the theatre I made this Summer. I’ll post a few more once I’m done with school in a couple weeks.

This theater has been reopened!!! Mayor Steve Streit has recently negotiated an agreement with the owners of the building and the facility has been renovated. A new marquee with lights, updated entry and bar/eating area. The Lockport Old Towne Cafe, neighbor to the Roxy, serves their specialty food incuding hotdogs, sausage sandwiches, desserts. It is a BYOB theater. The weekend of July 25 the Roxy showed Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. August 8 and 9 will be the gothic horror Hansel and Gretel.
