Previous Names: Princess Theatre
Originally opened as the Princess Theatre. It was remodeled in 1940 and renamed Roxy Theatre. It continued until at least 1950. Driving in Baxley, Georgia off U.S. 1, I stopped by what was left of a movie house, the Roxy Theatre. It was beyond repair and surprised the city would let it fester like it was. I took a couple of pictures of the front with its very small marquee, the one sheet frames were still up, but that was about it. Looked like the roof had finally given out. Through the glass door I was able to get one picture of scrap wood, seats, cans and such. Really a sad picture.
The Roxy Theatre was a Martin-Simpson theatre at one time with L.M. Stockton as genreal manager of the eight screens in Georgia.
