Roxie Cinema- Pittsburgh, PA? I can’t find anything about the theater, about the film “Little Brimstone” or the actress “Jean Fox”. Nothing either for “And Moonlight Too” starring Lisa Swan and Robert Dickey. A mystery. Maybe it’s an architectural model for a theater which was never built? Difficult to tell from the picture.

  1. These are wonderful! I love the old jewelry store entrance. Morstein’s Jewelers on South Light Street, Federal Hill in Baltimore has that upward sweep style. Seems out of place now whenever I pass it.

  2. I have a black belt in Googling, and I couldn’t find anything about either Jean Fox or “Little Brimstone” either. There’s not even a movie of that name listed in the Internet Movie Database (imdb.com). Strange.
