Real photo postcard of the Roxy
From back of postcard:
“Opened August 31, 1933, featuring motion pictures and vaudeville, this Art Deco Theatre designed by prominent Philadelphia Theatre Architect David Supowitz, is an excellent example of the effort taken to bring the glamour and excitement of Hollywood to America’s small towns. Photo by Tim Burger.”
