When I was growing up, the popular hang out on Friday or Saturday night was the dollar show at Roxana Cine, one of just a few single-screen theaters left at that time. Many residents were very disappointed when it was announced in 2002 the theater would no longer be in business after providing local entertainment for over 60 years. The building was sold and then donated to the church next door. The church now operates the building as a community center. It still looks much the same as it always has, and I for one am glad it is being put to good use rather than empty and falling apart.
