Maybe it wasn’t. The 1963 motion picture almanac lists the Ephrata Roxy as part of the Roxy Theater Circuit. Other theaters in the circuit at that time were the Roosevelt in Downington, the Main in Ephrata, the Campus and Roxy in Lewisburg, the Martin and Roxy in Lock Haven and the Roxy in Meyersdale. These were all in PA. Roxy officers were the Stiefel brothers, Oscar, Harry, Barney and Morris.

I was always under the impression there was at one time two theatres in Ephrata, one called the Roxy and the other one called the Grand. I was only 8 years old when the Roxy burned. I thought when the “Main Twin Theatres” replaced the Main Theatre they were named the Roxy and The Grand in memory of the two theatres that once operated in Ephrata.
