In the early 90’s, the theatre became The Roxy led by renowned promoter Alex Cooley. The Roxy enjoyed countless sold-out performances by some of the most legendary names in music. However, years of rowdy crowds took their toll on the theatre and The Roxy closed in 2008. A $6 million renovation followed, by developer and owner Charlie Loudermilk, determined to preserve the history.
