My uncle A.S. Johnson Jr’s (Bud’s) list of Johnson Construction Co. theater jobs includes the Roxy in Bay City. My grandfather A.S. “Al” Johnson took 35mm slides of most of the theaters that he worked on, but unfortunately there are no slides in his collection of this theater or project.

Operated at this location from 1906 - 1912 as the Alvarado. Subsequent names were Lyric (1913), Grotto (1914) and Temple (1925). In 1942 the Roxy Theater opened here.

This theatre was owned and operated by Harold Bernstein of Bay City. He had a small chain known as Bernstein Theatres, which also operated in Bay City, the Lafayette, Tivoli (Pines), Woodside (Royal) and in Saginaw, the Daniel, later purchased by Ed Johnson. Ed Johnson also operated the Colonial in Essexville, under lease, until it closed.
