Trinity Services reveals renovated Roxy theater to members of Trinity community

Feb 27, 2018

LOCKPORT, IL — Trinity Services, Inc. revealed an entirely renovated Roxy theater at a private event Feb. 21 in downtown Lockport, allowing members of the Trinity Services community to experience the renewed space for the first time.

In 1995, Trinity Services purchased the Roxy theater, and for many years, the space served as a social spot for the people with developmental disabilities and mental illness whom Trinity supports. The unique social experience it provided drew attention locally and nationally, including coverage from National Public Radio.

In recent years, through a partnership with the City of Lockport, the Roxy was open to the public select nights for movie viewings and other events. The building was then temporarily closed for renovations, which were revealed at the Feb. 21 event.

Updates include a new facade and marquee sign; new flooring; updated bar, lounge and recreation areas; fresh interior paint and lighting fixtures; a new roof; and upgraded fire and safety systems. All renovations emphasize a 1920s Art Deco theme.

When guests enter the building, they may check their coats and walk through a set of colorful glass doors that open to the Roxy’s bar and lounge area. This area is equipped with comfortable seats and tables, and a beautiful bar with a backlit bar top. Beyond the lounge is the Roxy’s performance space, in which theater or table seating can be configured. A stage provides room for musical performances and presentations.

At the event, a string quartet from Lincoln-Way Central High School and The Big Lagniappe, a New Orleans-style jazz band which features Trinity staff member Kevin Krauss on keyboard, took the stage for portions of the evening. Their performances delighted attendees and showed the versatility of the space.

For those who Trinity serves, The Roxy has set the stage for new relationships and friendships to blossom, social skills to grow, and a true sense of community to flourish. With the renovations, the lounge area will be more conducive to conversation. The theater will be used for dinners, lectures, live entertainment, movies and more. Trinity Services' staff will use the space for celebrations, staff appreciation events and trainings.

By early summer, the Roxy will also be available for the public to rent for events like wedding receptions, birthday parties and other gatherings.

The Roxy’s renovation ensures that for many years to come, people will benefit from the beautiful social gathering spot where they can enjoy the company of friends.

Trinity Services, Inc. is a 68-year-old, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives. Trinity serves more than 3,500 people in more than 30 communities in northeast, central and southwest Illinois. To learn more, visit www.trinity-services.org.
