FULLERTON, CA — After being shutterred for many years, the Fox Fullerton, is opening up once again for a stage show on April 27th. This will be the culmination of a huge fundraising campaign to restore it.
For the first time in 53 years, the Fox Fullerton Theatre curtain will rise on a stage performance, during “A Night in Fullerton” on April 27.
In 1954, the last live stage show was performed. Then the Fox became a full-time movie theater. In 1987, it closed after falling into disrepair.
Two years ago, the Historic Theater Foundation, with the help of a $1.6 million grant from the city and private funds, launched a campaign to restore the theater to its former glory.

Will the Fox be used to screen films in the future?
