NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Its one of the last remaining neighborhood theaters in the country and East Nashville residents are determined to save it. Its hard to believe but Meridian and Wilburn was once a thriving corner in North East Nashville. The Roxy Theater was at the center of it all. After decades of neglect the building has fallen into disrepair. Owner Robert Solomon is restoring the building with help from a non-profit group called "Save the Roxy." On Saturday, November 9th, the theater will be open to the public for the "Roxy Revival." The free event will feature live bands, food and a movie. To learn more, CLICK HERE.
