The Roxy in Wichita was listed as a foreign language theater in the 1947 IMPA, but the exact language is not specified.

This block has been completely redeveloped. The theater has been razed.

The Roxy exits Wichita’s downtown with Azteca Studio Films on April 15, 1956 and a double feature “Historia de un Corazón” with Rosario Granados and “Los hijos de María Morale” with Irma Durantes. The building was converted that year for other purposes and later razed.
