Viewing: Photo | Street View

Part of the Proctor and Marsh chain, the Roxy Theatre opened in 1948, and closed in 1969. It then sat empty until the early-1990’s when it was purchased by the Muskogee Little Theatre to use for plays, concerts, etc.

Some photos – at night with the magnificent marquee ablaze, and during the recent Azalea Festival parade in downtown Muskogee.

Chuck 1231, I can confirm that the Roxy is indeed a live venue. I attended a screening during the April 2009 Bare Bones Film Festival at the Roxy, and I sold a photo of the theater for use in promoting their summer 2010 live music lineup.

Who would a person contact about renting the Roxy Theatre?

I’m thinking the theater is managed by a non-profit that might be connected with the City of Muskogee – perhaps a call to City Hall might be the best place to start.
