The Roxy Theatre was opened on 11th December, 1916. Closed in the 1920’s, it reopened again in around 1935 and closed in the mid-1950’s. From the 1980’s till 2009 it was a second hand store then closed and is in a current state of dis-repair.

Are you sure that Roxy was the theatre’s original name? If so, it pre-dated the world-famous Roxy in New York City by more than a decade. I’ve always thought that all other Roxys came after that.

This is not the Roxy New Brighton, it’s the Joyland (later Princess) theatre, the street view is dated being that the Feb 22nd earthquake claimed enough damage to end it’s days.
