The Roxy Theatre opened on July 4, 1949 and was operated by Odeon Theatres (Canada) Ltd. A great Saturday matinee movie theatre in the late-1950’s and early-1960’s for the youngsters of West Hill. I think it was a dime or 15 cents to get in. You got a couple of shorts and cartoons and a feature.
I remember seeing “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken” and “The Incredible Mr. Limpet” there.
Near the end of it’s life it booked live bands to open the shows. I remember a band with tiny amps doing “Get Off My Cloud” by the Stones. The first live band I’d ever seen.
The Roxy Theatre in West Hill closed in 1965 or 1966. A gas station replaced it, which has itself since been demolished.
