Opened in 1912 as the Poppy Theatre by local jeweler Philip H. Doll. During its early years, the theater was also known as the Rex Theatre, Gem Theatre, and Gaiety Theatre.
This small movie house was remodeled in 1932 and reopened as the Roxie Cinema with 300 seats. In the late-1960’s and early-1970’s it operated as an adult movie theatre.
Current management started repertory programming in March 1976. Under new leadership of Alan Holt, in 2009, the cinema became a nonprofit oranization, continuing to showcase films.
