The Roosevelt Theatre was designed by Christian W. Brandt and H.D. Ilgenfritz as a sister to the Cinderella Theatre, which opened a year earlier (1924) and sat about a hundred more than the Roosevelt’s 1,770. Like the Cinderella Theatre, it was designed in Spanish Colonial style. The Roosevelt Theatre was opened on September 17, 1925.
The theater was renamed the Imperial Theatre for one year (1929) before returning to its previous name.
In 1954, the Roosevelt Theatre was closed, and demolished not long afterwards.
