The Roxy Theatre opened in 1939 with seating listed at 600. I could not find who operated the Roxy Theatre.

The theatre closed in 1958 and became Hall’s Pensacola Wholesale. It was demolished in late April 2013.

The Roxy was an African-American theatre. Before it became Hall’s, it was a recording studio in the late 1960’s, Papa Don Productions, owned by Papa Don Schroeder, the producer of “I’m Your Puppet” by James and Bobby Purify and “Everlasting Love” by Carl Carlton.

I was in Pensacola two weeks ago, and the Roxy was in the process of being demolished. It is now a pile of rubble.
