The Roxy Theatres of Uxbridge was restored, redesigned and reopened on December 13th, 1996. It represents a true “labour of love” by a couple of crazy film buffs named Mark and Cathy Christoff.

“We love our community but the only thing missing is a movie theatre. A place for folks to meet on a Saturday night, have some great popcorn with real butter in a clean and comfortable environment reminiscent of days gone past with movie nostalgia surrounding them but still with state-of-the-art projection and sound equipment. We want a place where the kids can go and meet their friends for a night out, where families can head to the movies on a Saturday afternoon and feel it was a great time spent together, where seniors can walk to the movies and feel comfortable in their hometown seeing a movie at an affordable price, the way it should be non-threatening and friendly. We want this theatre to be a place where people take pride in knowing this is their theatre, in their town and it’s special. That is our goal and I think we have accomplished it so far and will continue to provide this service to our community”.

The Roxy is a full service, first-run theatre with new and old movies screening seven days a week, with matinees on weekends and holidays. During the summer months we screen movies every day and evening endeavouring to always have a family film available to daytime screenings, a teen film for Friday and Saturday nights and adult films as well.

It is amazing how many theatres are named ROXY in imitation of the once famous name of the New York City panjandrum of the movie palace: Samual Lionel Rothapfel = “Roxy”. His namesake was the famous ROXY THEATRE in NYC, which outlasted him by only 25 years when it was demolished in 1960. The whole story is in that landmark book “The Best Remaining Seats: The Story of the Golden Age of the Movie Palace” by the late Ben M. Hall in 1961. Various editions of it are sometimes available from www.Amazon.com, but only the first edition contains the color plates.

Definately THE BEST popcorn anywhere! Current movies, fast servers, super clean and the best part it’s located in the HEART of our town, Uxbridge, Ontario. A HUGE thank you to Mark and Cathy Christoff!
