All Things Roxy
BUILT IN 1904 AND OPENED IN FEBRUARY 1905 AS THE LAWERENCE HARDWARE COMPANY AT A COST OF $50,000. THE ORIGINAL HIGH VICTORIAN FACADE WAS ALTERED TO THE CURRENT ART DECO LOOK IN 1937-38 WHEN IT WAS CONVERTED TO A MOVIE THEATRE.
In 1938 the new cinema was named the Avolie Theatre, which was the winning name, picked from over 150 entries in a local contest.
The name was changed to the Roxy in 1952 by the new owner, at that time, H.J. Stevenson of Prince George, It has continued as The Roxy Theatre to the present with a brief closing in 1984. Painted graphic ads from the original hardware store can still be seen on the top of the northeast side wall of the building, and in fact the two side walls and the back wall are original walls from the 1905 Lawrence Hardware Store, as is the original stone walled full basement.
