Oxboro Theatre 1950s also known as the Studio 97
The theatre was located near the intersection of 98th Street and Lynadale in Bloomington.  In the past this area was the unincorporated town of Oxboro, dating from the 1850s. The Oxborough family from Canada built a trading post called Oxboro Heath on what is now Clover Center. Meanwhile Bloomington was a stagecoach stop at Nine Mile Creek, and there was another settlement at Old Shakopee Road and Old Cedar. These all eventually got absorbed into the city of Bloomington. For some in Burnsville, during the 1950's Oxboro offered a drug store, dentist, the Walsh's Grocery store and this movie theatre.
