Roxie Reflection (2015)

Detail of the Art Deco exterior of the 1932 Roxie Theatre, the last movie palace to open on Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles. As you can see, the Roxie is one of the historic Broadway theatres that remain in decaying condition, awaiting a financially and politically viable restoration plan. Reflected in the window of the Hispanic clothing shop that currently occupies the Roxie’s ground floor is the former Schulte United department store, built in 1928.
