Roxy fire

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Roxy Theatre opened in 1939 from what I found. Seating was listed at 900. It was down the street from the Cinema (Orpheum Theatre) and across the street from the Camelot (Palace Theatre).

Since closing in the mid-1950’s it has been demolished and there is a parking garage where the theatre once stood. Any further information on the Roxy Theatre would be appreciated.

Actually the theater burned. The double feature playing at the time was “Pride of St. Louis” and “The First Time.” For many years the marquee remained. The Pied Piper music store used the front portion. The former auditorium had the seats removed and the rear entrance served as a parking facility. CB Hukle owned the theater.
