Really a beautiful theatre. My father was one of several projectionist that worked there. I often would go to work with, and followed in his footsteps to become a projectionist myself.

This house probably opened in 1931. That year the May 24 issue of The Film Daily ran this notice:

“Frankfort, Ind. — A theater is to be erected here by Valos and Gregory at an estimated cost of $100,000.”
I haven’t been able to find any opening notices, but Valos and Gregory’s “Roxey” Theatre at Frankfort was mentioned in the June 18, 1934 issue of the Logansport Pharos-Tribune. Their newly-incorporated company, the Cass Theatre Corporation, had just taken over the Paramount and Luna Theatres in Logansport.
