The Roxie Gets a Makeover

Our festival venue, The Roxie, is back in action after going dark briefly in March to complete some necessary upgrades. Hard as it was to shut the doors, it was well worth the wait!

Roxie Theater lobby


The Roxie is back in action after going dark briefly in March to complete some necessary upgrades.  Hard as it was to shut the doors, it was well worth the wait! 

New directors Kate and Chris Statton worked closely with Kuth Ranieri architects to completely transform the lobby. The space underwent a total makeover including the installation of a fabulous retro patterned carpet and brand new vampy paint job for the walls. Also a gorgeous red velvet curtain now takes center stage as the new frame around concessions.  Added for atmosphere, two stunning 4 foot light boxes displaying high resolution photos of the theater's vintage projectors have been placed on the lobby walls.  The inside of the theater itself also received it's share of attention. There has been a total revival of the art deco sconces, the floor brought to a darker tone, and a complimentary new color scheme accents the victorian detailing.

Major technical improvements at the Roxie is perhaps the most exciting aspect of the renovation. A THX approved Dolby Digital Surround sound system has been installed, thanks to a generous donation from Pixar and a secured grant from LEF foundation. Expect a different quality of experience!
