Roxy Theater, Picher, OK

What a grand marquee for such a tiny theater!

Would like to learn more about the Roxy, so if anyone out there has data please share!

Close study of these photographs indicate that perhaps signage from the Plaza were later moved over to the Roxy. Notice that the Roxy and 1960 Plaza exterior pictures have the same rough quarried stone exterior and matching upper story windows.

This was in the Miami (OK) News-Record on 12/27/45:

The Mystic theater of Picher, owned by J. D. Wineland since 1918, has been purchased by the Consolidated Theaters of Oklahoma, who are also the owners of the Plaza and Roxy theaters here. The Mystic will be closed for about 15 days to be re-decorated and for the installation of new equipment.

The Mystic will be managed by Jim Worsley, who is also manager of the Plaza and the Roxy. Wineland, who has apartments over the theater, moved to Joplin yesterday. He has announced no future business plans.
