I discovered and photographed the Roxy Theatre in about 1984. It was a plain white building with a small vertical sign attached on the front spelling “Roxy” in black letters outlined with neon. It had two movie poster frames on each side of the entrance. It also had a small overhang over the entrance that said “Theatre” on the front and “Roxy” on the sides. It was showing pornographic movies at that time (according to the advertising) and was known as the Roxy Follies Theatre. It was in a dangerous part of Jacksonville.
