About This Image

The Dufwin theater in Oakland, CA - known better as The Roxie. The Dufwin opened on October 8, 1928 and was named after Henry Duffy, a theater producer, and his wife, actress Dale Winter (combining the first syllables of their surnames). It was one of eight theaters owned by Duffy which featured the Henry Duffy Players. The opening play was Vincent Lawrence's "In Love With Life." Actor Leo Carrillo (who would years later be known as Pancho on "The Cisco Kid") served as Master of Ceremonies at the theater's opening. Sadly, Duffy went bankrupt in the early days of the depression, resulting in the Dufwin's closure (and subsequent rebirth as the Roxie).

Many events have been held here over the years, but as the Roxie, was a premiere movie house from the 60's through the 80's when it closed. The Roxie showed all of the first-run motion pictures, and was quite the place to see and be seen. It was restored again in the 90's and now it's an office building.

Maker Petro Poroshenko wins Ukraine presidential selection "This is in regards to values, " Poroshenko documented. "The figures, The the legal, the lack of the corruption, The fair system of the courts when everybody can defend themselves. when you're asking me, 'What will be?' In one word it is only modernize my country. "The poll, Which interviewed ukrainian babes 17,000 voters next to 400 precincts, Claimed a margin of error of 2 number points, stipulating Poroshenko clearly passed the 50 percent mark needed to win without a runoff. The regional administration in Donetsk said only 426 of 2,430 polling stations in your neighborhood were open Sunday, And none in the location of Donetsk, which includes 1 million people. "I am convinced how the election must finally bring peace to Ukraine, put an end to lawlessness, Stop disorder, Stop bandit panic in the east, " Poroshenko menti one d. "People with weapons must be faraway from Ukrainian streets, Ukrainian villages and cities. Poroshenko strongly backs closer ties while 28 nation EU, But also speaks about the requirement to normalize ties with Russia. "He is a very smart man who can work hard when compared to others, And he is also a businessman and knows that compromises are necessary even if unpleasant, " Said 55 year old Kiev teacher Larisa Kirichenko. A convoy of an armored personnel carrier and seven trucks carrying hundreds heavily armed men drove through central Donetsk. At one sta, Vyacheslav Kucher, 36, Tested the doorway and gave a thumbs up sign after finding it locked. Just over yesterday, Rinat Akhmetov, The billionaire metals tycoon who is Ukraine's richest man, Had workers from his factories in Mariupol join police to patrol the city and evict the pro Russia insurgents from united states buildings. "I want order with this country. We can't continue without any president. "We came to show this whole situation is contrived, " he said. "One side are classified as terrorists, sub-par ones get called fascists. But we have no variation between us. it was one faith, We speak one terms. We would just like there to be peace. Poroshenko said his first priority is to finish the war and chaos caused by pro Russian separatists in the east. Sunday's ballot took place despite weeks of fighting in the sprawling eastern regions that form Ukraine's industrial heartland, Where pro Russia separatist have seized federal buildings and battled federal troops. The rebels had vowed to block the ballot in the east and less than 20 percent of the polling stations were open there. In an interview with CBS News reporter Clarissa Ward for "60 tracfone minutes, Poroshenko who believed he was "solely" The ninth richest man in the Ukraine said many of the nation's oligarchs did not support the revolution just because it was good for business. "This is the actual values, Poroshenko believed. "The valuations, The justice, the absence of the corruption, The fair system of the courts when everyone is able to defend themselves. in case you are asking me, 'What is the fact that?' In one word it is only modernize my country, The study, Which questioned 17,000 voters near 400 precincts, Claimed a margin of error of 2 fraction points, specifying Poroshenko clearly passed the 50 percent mark needed to win without a runoff. It was practiced by the Razumkov Center, Kiev foreign Sociology Institute and the Democratic Initiatives Foundation. The election came three months after the country's pro Russia leader fled in February, Chased from power by months of protests over corruption and his decision to reject a pact with europe and forge closer ties with Moscow, And two months after russian federation annexed Crimea. Yet the question of who was able to vote Sunday loomed large over the democratic process. a bit 35.5 million Ukrainians were permitted vote, But separatists in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions which have 5.1 million voters said they will not hold the vote as they are no longer part of Ukraine. Little voting was swirling in the east. The regional managing in Donetsk said only 426 of 2,430 polling stations in your neighborhood were open Sunday, And none in the location of Donetsk, including 1 million people. there's no voting in the city of Luhansk either, But some programs were open in the wider Luhansk region. Fighting started Sunday in the Luhansk town of Novoaidar, Where an AP media reporter heard heavy gunfire. Areas north of the location, 30 miles north of the rebel held city of Luhansk, Are under the control of pro fed forces. Sergei Melnichuk, A Ukrainian army battalion commander positioned in Novoaidar, Said about 50 armed pro Russia rebels attacked a polling station searching for seize ballots already cast. He said these were thwarted and 13 of them were captured. The Interfax Ukraine news agency quoted deputy interior minister as saying one individual was killed and another injured in the fighting. Poroshenko decried the deadly clashes in his continent after casting his ballot Sunday in Kiev, Where many people wore established embroidered shirts in a sign of Ukrainian patriotism. "I am convinced the fact that election must finally bring peace to Ukraine, rest lawlessness, Stop madness, Stop bandit horror in the east, Poroshenko these. "People with weapons must be taken out of Ukrainian streets, Ukrainian communities and cities, Many voters appreciate Poroshenko's pragmatism and his apparent knack for undermine, A unique trait in a political environment long dominated by intransigent figures. Poroshenko strongly backs closer ties with all the current 28 nation EU, But also speaks about the requirement to normalize ties with Russia. "He is a very smart man who can work hard inside comparison to others, And he is also a businessman and knows that compromises should be made even if unpleasant, Said 55 years old Kiev teacher Larisa Kirichenko. She also voiced hope that Poroshenko will negotiate a peaceful solution to the issues in the east. The interim Kiev united states government and the West have accused Russia of backing the separatist uprising. Moscow has denied the accusations but annexed Ukraine's Black Sea peninsula of Crimea after a separatist vote there. Ukraine and the rest of the world have not accepted Moscow's annexation of Crimea, So residents there who wanted to vote Sunday were allowed to go to other areas in Ukraine. It was cloudy how many did so. Ukrainian election officials said they have received as little as 26 percent of the election registers for the Donetsk region and 16 percent for the Luhansk region. Ukraine's deputy inside minister, Serhiy Yarovyi, Said police could only ensure security at polling stations in just nine of the 34 electoral districts in the east. There were plenty of interruptions Sunday in Donetsk. A convoy of an armored personnel carrier and seven trucks carrying several hundred heavily armed men drove through central Donetsk. The gunmen got away from the trucks, Stood to attention and shot into the air in jubilation as thousands of supporters cheered them. A team of insurgents visited polling stations Sunday in Donetsk ensuring they were closed. At one rail station, Vyacheslav Kucher, 36, Tested the door and gave a thumbs up sign after finding it locked. "I am checking to see things are all normal, To see that there are no nonsense, which means this junta doesn't come to power, Kucher announced. Outside the Donetsk maintenance building, who has been occupied by rebels since early April, A group of masked men drove up carrying confiscated ballot boxes and made a show of smashing them on news cameras. One polling station in Donetsk opened but minutes later gunmen arrived and forced its election percentage out. Gunmen also stormed the Donetsk village council in Artemivka which was hosting a polling station and set it ablaze, The Ukrainian insides Ministry said. Yet some parts of the Donetsk region remain under greater government control so voting could arise. within the Azov Sea port of Mariupol, 202 out of its 216 polling stations were working. Just over a week ago, Rinat Akhmetov, The billionaire metals tycoon who is Ukraine's most wealthy man, Had workers from his factories in Mariupol join police to patrol the city and evict the pro Russia insurgents from authorities buildings.

How, funny, I worked in that building until last year for a software company. WOW! You would never know it was a theatre on the inside of the building. It has been completely gutted and renovated to offices. Oakland has been making a big effort to renovate several districts and historic buildings near downtown. Thanks for the photo.
