The Roxy Theater News


Quote
The Roxy Theater, where the post office is today, opened on Dec. 16, 1943 as a proud member of the Fox-West Coast theater chain. Many of the Pacific Beach kids who remember Saturday matinees at the Roxy are grandparents today. Scott Shore purchased the building in 1977 and booked live shows and art movies. I took this photo in September of 1980, when “Caligula” was the featured film. It featured Malcolm McDowell, John Gielgud, Peter O’Toole and Helen Mirren. The post office announced, on March 2, 1981, that it had spent $1.1 million to purchase the property. The theater was demolished three months later.


I was pretty sure that it closed in 1980, my first year playing Little League Baseball because I wanted to go see a movie there. But we never did.
