Roxie Theater celebrates legacy of Roxie Releasing

Published Wednesday March 1

And if you’re up for some bowling, there’s a benefit for the Roxie at Mission Bowling…

The Roxie Theater which opened in 1909 and is the longest continuously operated movie theater in the country, became an art property in 1976.

Bill Banning joined the team in 1984 and immediately established Roxie Releasing, and an ambitious plan to discover and distribute movies worldwide.

Films such as “Red Rock West” and the documentaries “Kurt and Courtney” and “Genghis Blues” were wildly popular in art property theaters across the country, and the box office take — about $7 mill. — helped keep the Roxie alive during challenging times for art houses.

Article length: About 450 words.
