Fox Theatre Seeks Partner(s)
CRESTVIEW, FL — Looking for a short term investor or other to help in the renovation of this FOX THEATRE. The name has been retained and is incorportated in the State of Florida.
Built in 1947, the Fox premiered the movie “12 O'Clock High.” The building location is on Main Street in downtown Crestview, Florida in the center of town. Crestview is located next to Eglin AFB where a lot of the filming was made as well as in Crestview. Gregory Peck was featured in local newspapers and played baseball with some of the local teams while filming here.
The theatre was closed in 1979 and I obtained it from the second owner. Due to local fire codes etc., I am looking for some help in bringing back to life this historical building. The theatre had a single screen and a larger stage has been added 20'X40'. With hopes of bringing it back to life, I plan on having live shows along with some movies and eats.
Crestview is a member of the Main Street Assocition and has made many improvments to its downtown area. One of the fastest growing cities in Florida, Crestview is located only a few miles from Destin, Fort Walton Beach and the Gulf of Mexico.
