The Roxy Theatre was opened prior to 1938. Around that time it was renamed Prince Theatre, when it was operated by the Crescent Amusement Co. It was still open in 1943, but had closed by 1950.

Toward the bottom of this web page about the Princess Theatre is the story of how the Prince Theatre got its name. Until 1938 it was called the Roxy Theatre. When the Princess burned that year, its marquee survived. The “ss” was cut off the end and the remainder of the marquee, reading Prince, was moved to the Roxy.

The impression I got from the text is that the Roxy/Prince was down Roane Street from the Princess.
