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.
