The Roxy Theatre opened on July 4, 1949 and was operated by Odeon Theatres (Canada) Ltd. A great Saturday matinee movie theatre in the late-1950’s and early-1960’s for the youngsters of West Hill. I think it was a dime or 15 cents to get in. You got a couple of shorts and cartoons and a feature.
I remember seeing “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken” and “The Incredible Mr. Limpet” there.
Near the end of it’s life it booked live bands to open the shows. I remember a band with tiny amps doing “Get Off My Cloud” by the Stones. The first live band I’d ever seen.
The Roxy Theatre in the West Hill district of Scarborough closed in 1965 or 1966. A gas station replaced it, which has itself since been demolished.
