The Grand Opening ad for the Roxy Theatre February 12, 1937 is now displayed.

On a trip through Montpelier I found this description on a plaque in front of the old Roxy location:

“The Roxy operated during the Late 30’s and early 40’s. Much to the dismay of hundreds of children who came to see the Saturday afternoon matinee, the Roxy was destroyed by fire. The shell of the building was later remodeled and became a florist shop. The building itself was torn down and the First Security Bank constructed on the site in 1962.”
