Previous Names: Roxana Theatre, BAC Cine
The Roxana Theatre was opened on September 1, 1941 with Bing Crosby & Bob Hope in “Road to Singapore”. Although the Roxana Theatre survived a tornado in 1949 (which tore the roof off the building), competition ultimately proved to be a far greater threat.
The Roxana Cine showed its final film in February 2002 as Kerasotes Theatres closed the old movie house after six decades of delighting local audiences.
The theatre, which had been charging $2.50 per ticket, was no longer turning a profit.
The Roxana Cine is now used as a community center owned by a next-door church and presents live performances.
