Roxy Theatre Ashland, Pa.

The Roxy Theatre was operating prior to 1941, and continued until at least 1950. This was a rather impressive Art Deco style theatre for a small town. It’s facade and marquee would have looked just fine on Market Street or Chestnut Street in center city Philadelphia, but no… it was on W. Centre Street in Ashland, a small down in the coal regions of eastern Pennsylvania, about a hundred miles northwest of Philladelphia.

I have a feeling that it was designed by architect David Supowitz as it had an exact duplicate marquee of the one on the Roxy Theatre in Lock Haven, PA. which was designed by Supowitz.
