Roxy Horror





It's not quite the Paradise.....

...but the Roxy Theatre, which in its heyday hosted midnight showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Song Remains The Same and dozens of others, recently had its original marquee exposed after the current, deperate-to-unload-the-site's owner's sign was peeled away (see below, courtesy of boldts.net)


Photos taken on March 14, 2008, at 1213 Danforth Avenue, Toronto, Ontario.

If you are interested here are some additional photos of the Roxy, also in the comments there are some links to historical pictures of it in its prime and links to the plans for when it is converted to a ESSO station.
