Opening in 1920, the P. J. Murphy building, present home to the Roxy Theater Antiques and Gifts, was originally a Liberty Theatre. In 1920 a regular priced movie was 15 cents, and a double feature was 30 cents.  Both included "War Tax."

Longer films of the day were billed as "two reel" films and if a show was bound to be sold out, you could reserve a seat.  Seats were mohair and the popcorn might as well have been free.

Films of the day were educational and billed as such . . . "Ladies, both married and single should see this picture. You may obtain some ideas of what your present of future husband may be doing!"  Piques the curiousity, nearly 100 later!
