Description:
View of the demolition of the Roxy Theater in Atlanta, Georgia as seen looking through the rear of stage area.
The Keith-Albee Georgia Theater was constructed in 1926 for well over a million dollars on the site of the former Georgia Governor's mansion at 210 Peachtree Street. It seated 2,500 patrons and was originally host to various vaudeville acts, orchestral performances, and plays, as well as movies. In the 1930's the theater was renamed the Roxy. In the fall of 1938 the Roxy was refurbished in character with its original decor. The Roxy was demolished in 1972. Its Wurtlizer pipe organ was relocated to San Sylmar, a private museum in California.
