A Room at the Roxy

Roxy Wall blog post image.jpgThe WALL, located at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre at 700 Hamilton Street, is a Vancouver Heritage Foundation public art initiative, and is made possible through a partnership between the VHF, JJ Bean Coffee Roasters, and the CBC. 

The current feature exhibit is a production still from the 1957 studio-shot drama, A Room at the Roxy, captured by CBC Vancouver Staff photographer Alvin Armstrong.  The image features a critical moment in the drama and gives the illusion of capturing a real moment in time.

A Room at the Roxy was curated by CBC Vancouver Media Librarian, Christine Hagemoen, CBC Vancouver Media Archives.

Here's a short video featuring scenes from Room at the Roxy and all involved in the studio shoot from 1957.
