Construction of the Roxy Theatre began in November 1935. The architect is not named, but it was constructed by the Whiting Brothers, and the interior decorations were by Nat Smythe of the Scenic Studios, Los Angeles. It was built to replace the nearby Liberty Theater which had been destroyed by fire in October 1935. The Roxy Theatre was opened by Harry L. Nace Theatres on May 1, 1936 with “Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington”.

It had closed by 1954 when the new (current) Roxy Theater opened on nearby W. Hopi Drive. The 1930’s Roxy Theatre now serves as a Southwest Accents gift store.
