It was probably 1934 or 1935 that the Colonial/Durant Theatre was renamed the Roxy. A list of theater projects designed by Flint architect George J. Bachmann, published in the 1950 Theatre Catalog, includes a “Roxie” Theatre in Flint, listed as a 1934 project. Despite the variant spelling, the entry probably does refer to this Roxy Theatre.
