The Shaw Theater was located in downtown Quincy. It was opened prior to 1941 when it was operated by Interstate Enterprises. It was a segregated theater, though black audiences were permitted in the balcony. Upon the opening of the Leaf Theater in the 1940’s, the Shaw Theater became the Roxy Theater, which was strictly for black audiences. The building was later demolished and is now a parking lot.

I have a newspaper story with pictures about the Roxy. It even has a picture of the floor of the projection booth and you can see the pedestal base and film on the floor. My scanner has failed me, but if you want a copy of the article with pictures email me at and I will mail you a copy.
