Fullerton Community saves landmark Fox Theatre

“Congratulations, Fullerton CA! Your community efforts and donations have saved the historic Fox Theatre from the wrecking ball, and it’s just been declared a landmark. What are you going to do now?”

Just 20 minutes away from Disneyland is the theatre that introduced talking pictures to Orange County. With a capacity for film and stage entertainment, the Fox Fullerton theatre is contained in a complex including enough viable commercial space to make a thriving cultural destination. Movies, concerts, dinner theatre, restaurants, and retail can all be part of the future in a restored landmark that preserves the past.

The work has just begun. Dedicated volunteers are making remarkable progress in an effort to clean and freshen up the theater. While plans develop for a full restoration of the Fox, the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation is considering numerous options for leasing and developing the surrounding property. A wide variety of creative and commercial potential awaits interested parties who now have a chance to become part of this exciting project. There are plenty of opportunities for investment and involvement.

All inquiries may be directed to Jon Wagner – Executive Director,
Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation. Phone: (714) 870-0069 Fax: (714) 870-5123

Good Job everybody! We need to keep these theatres around!
They are our cinematic history!
We cannot let them disintergrate as old films have and continue.
The memories might fade but we can’t allow these legends to!
