We are saving a piece of our rich history and building a Community Space for the future. When we first reopened the theatre in 2018, the community had a priority. They wanted modern-day comfort. We needed new seats with more legroom & cup holders and air conditioning for those warm summer days!
Since the restoration, we have already replaced half of those seats. We continue to lovingly upgrade the building. Most recently an overhaul of the green room and installation of sound and lighting for live community performances.
Our board of directors passionately raise funds through city & county lodging tax programs, a WA Commerce Building for the Arts grant, numerous corporate donations and foundation grants. We have support from a growing number of generous donors.
We continue to host movies and community events including opera & ballet recitals, comedy shows, concerts, brunches, debates & forums, and presentations. Our art-house cinema programming includes the best in first-run independent film plus, regular block parties featuring classic, cult and fan favorites. We’ve love to host free movies for the community engaging all ages during the Armed Forces Day Festival and the holiday season.
Roxy is currently upgrading the heating and cooling system (HVAC) for comfort and energy efficiency. What does an 80-year-old building have? An out-of-service swamp cooler. Our goal is to install that new HVAC system in June of this year!
We already have approximately $50,000 of the $140,000 we need to replace the old 'swamp' cooling system and we hope you will join us in this very practical, utilitarian but much-needed theatre improvement. We need your help and contributions to raise funds to install our new HVAC system.
