The Roxy Theatre was opened November 5, 1932. Around 1948 it was remodelled to the plans of architect Ted Rogvoy. Growing up in Detroit in the early-1950’s, the Roxy Theatre was one of three theatres on Woodward Avenue (along with the Colonial Theatre and the Fine Arts Theatre) all the kids in the neighborhood would end up at on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
We saw all the B, C and D horror movies of the time, all the “giant monster” movies, all the “gladiator movies”, all the “atomic radiation causes something or sombody to change drastically” movies, as well as some pretty well known movies, like “Bridge on the River Kwai”. All for 35 cents. The Roxy Theatre usually showed triple features, and one of them always seemed to be a Randolph Scott cowboy movie. We’d stay there all day.
