General Information:

The Roxy Theatre was opened November 5, 1932. Around 1948 it was remodelled to the plans of architect Ted Rogvoy. Growing up in Detroit in the early-1950’s, the Roxy Theatre was one of three theatres on Woodward Avenue (along with the Colonial Theatre and the Fine Arts Theatre) all the kids in the neighborhood would end up at on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

The Roxy was one of our neighborhood hangouts in the 50s and 60s. I think every monster movie I saw as a kid I saw at the Roxy, and if not there, the Colonial or the Fine Arts. I seem to remember the Roxy and the Colonial being 35 cents
