AD FOR

The Roxy Theatre was opened around 1949. I have an advertisement from the Toronto Star dated April 7, 1969 for the Roxy Theatre showing “Hook, Line and Sinker” with Jerry Lewis & “Head” with The Monkees. It was closed in 1971

I’m thinking that the name listed above the newspaper clipping for this theatre may be a mistake. It’s most likely that Roxy was the name of the theatre and Cooksville is the area of Mississauga it was located in, but I’ll have to do some checking to find out more.

Here’s what I found for what is indeed the Roxy Theatre:

Roxy Cooksville (Mississauga) Opened about 1949 and closed 1971 Odeon owned the Roxy, which had 450 seats.

Mississauga Movie Theatres (old Mike Rivest page)

Another article about the Roxy, which indicates that the theatre had a quonset hut design similar to the Roxy Theatre in Woodbridge (a picture of which is included in the article) and was demolished shortly after its 1971 closure:

And this forum thread mentions that the Roxy was located on the Northwest corner of King and Hurontario Streets:
