The original architect on the Roxy was Floyd Kings of Mitchell, SD. The architect on the Luxury 5 was T-K Architects of Kansas City, MO.
The capacity at opening of the Roxy was 600. In 1959 it was cut to 527 when it was re-seated with American Bodiform seats.
The Luxury 5 now seats 801 in 5 auditoriums.
This theatre has always been owned and operated by the Logan family dba Logan Luxury Theatres Corp. The family did lease it out to a Mr. Nolop from about 1943 to 1948 and again to Hans and Mibs Hanson from 1949 to 1959.

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.
