The Roxy Theatre was the first Quonset-Hut style theatre to be built in the province of Ontario. It opened on April 13, 1948, with construction taking only 18 weeks. It was designed by architectural firm Molesworth, Secord & Savage of Toronto, and was built for Odeon Associated National Theatre Services Ltd.

Wherever did you get these pictures?

This theatre was on Nelson St. in Downtown Brampton. It was closed down even when I was a kid, shopping with my parents at the neighbouring Loblaws. At that time it looked pretty beat up with all the old neon signage smashed and rusted. Some torn and faded posters could be spotted in the boarded up marquee.

There was always talk of revitalizing the place through the 70’s. Making it into a modern cinema. But nothing ever came of it.

It’s amazing to actually see it when it was brand new and (perhaps) the only dedicated movie theatre in town at the time.
