Before being remodeled in 1940, the Roxy was called the Princess Theatre. The name change was announced in the March 23 issue of Boxoffice.

When the Martin-Thompson Theatres partnership was dissolved in 1961, Boxoffice of May 15 reported that the Roxy was one of the houses that would thereafter be operated by Martin Theatres.

Open from ABOUT 1950-1964? I’m fairly sure it was closed by 1967.

The owner from ABOUT 1955-1964 was Martin Theater of Georgia and Alabama Incorporated in Columbus, Georgia. They had around 159 theaters in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisinana, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington State. A number of those theaters were built especially for CINERAMA.

Can anyone come up with the exact address of the Roxy?
