Calling the little Roxy Theater on Missoula’s Hip Strip a cultural icon of statewide importance, Gov. Steve Bullock announced a $167,605 award in tourism infrastructure and community development grant block money to fund the restoration of the historic movie theater.
“We’re here to celebrate a great partnership of public and private resources united by that common goal to restore, enhance and preserve one of Missoula’s – and indeed one of Montana’s – great treasures,” Bullock said. “The Roxy really does represent more than just what you all think of as your community theater. It’s sort of that intersection of art, culture and history – all important parts of our entire state’s identity.”
