Previous Names: New Roxy Theatre
The New Roxy Theatre was constructed in 1941, and was a budget Streamline Moderne style building constructed out of cinder block. The center portion had some flair, being rounded with generous areas of glass block on the second floor. A small vertical sign hung over the entry. Both sides of the facade had small shopfronts.
The Roxy Theatre closed in 1961, but apartments in the front portion, which were apparently original to the design, were used until recently. The auditorium portion was long ago demolished, although the foundation can still be seen on satellite photos.
Even on the oldest street-views, the building looks quite scabby and neglected. It was repainted around 2016, but is basically derelict, with a massive hole in the roof.
