The Roxy in the News

Page 1

Page 2

  Since the Roxy has been around for over 70 years, it has attracted its share of attention from the news media. We've been written up in articles in various Forsyth newspapers over the years, and we've had space in the Billings Gazette, the Hysham Echo, a newspaper from San Diego, and even the "industry bible" of the theatre business, Boxoffice magazine. Here we've collected a group of articles, including the very first articles to appear on the Roxy when it was announced back in 1930.

We will be adding new discoveries of past articles, along with any new articles that happen to appear.

If you happen to run across any old pictures, articles, clippings or any other Roxy memorabilia, please let us know...we would like to add as much history as we can to our website.

Note: Articles have been edited, or notes inserted, to correct mistakes when appropriate.
