The Roxy

The Roxy Theatre in Neepawa is a rarity, an independently operated theatre in Manitoba. The Roxy is community owned and operated, staffed by dedicated volunteers striving to keep movies alive in small town Manitoba.

The Roxy was built in 1906 to replace an opera house. Initially it was used for live performances and was renovated into the Art Deco style in the 1930s.

Currently the Roxy is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The staff are having a little fun with the NOW PLAYING sign. They've been putting a different sign up each week. When I visited it said "Showing in 2 ply only no 3D. The Silence of the Stands"

Visit the Roxy on Facebook or Instagram.

  1. Fun sign! Interestingly there is a small theatre in Uxbridge (Ontario) that is also called the 'Roxy' and I think it's independently owned as well.
