By flashlight, the outline of an Egyptian-like motif in gold paint on the cement wall suggests that this old building enjoyed more glory in a distant past. It is a faint symbol of what used to be the ornate interior of the Liberty Theatre, the first building in Kennewick built to show movies and the predecessor to its successor, the Roxy Theatre.

According to the Kennewick Courier, the newspaper of record at the time, reported that the theater attracted 1000 patrons on opening night in 1920.  "Talkies" would come later to the Roxy Theatrantiques, antique store, antique mall, tri-cities, richland, kennewick, pasco, the dalles, hermiston, pendleton, portland, walla walla, oregon, washingtone, which opened in the early 1930ís and remained in place until 1957.

Changes to the Roxy Theater building were made in accordance with the vision of the City of Kennewick, to preserve its historic buildings. The original Roxy Theater exterior has been restored as well as the Kennewick Street entrance which features the theater's logo in the tile floor.

In the early 1960ís, the building was remodeled to accomodate Kenís and Ritaís, a men and womenís clothier shop. Over the next few years, it transformed from clothing shop to furniture store and the Dicker and Swap store.
