1939-1992Roxy Square stands on the lot where the largest movie theater in the islands was built by W.A. and Agnes Scharsch Fernandez in 1939. Designed by the well-known Honolulu architect C.W. Dickey, it was modeled after the famous Roxy Theater in New York City. With its state-of-the-art sound system, music drifted along the Kapa'a streets. Every one of the 1,050 seats had a clear view of the large silver screen. The interior Art Nouveau style, red velvet curtains, red seats and a lower and upper balcony entranced patrons. Ocean breezes entered through large vents, keeping the theater cool. Ushers wore black pants and white long-sleeved shirts, just like the New York Roxy.
