Fox Theater deteriorates further

LARAMIE, WY — The old Fox Theater has deteriorated to the point that city officials have blocked off the sidewalk and parking spaces in front of it and are planning to demolish it.

The theater has a hole in its roof which is in danger of collapsing. The building is also contaminated with asbestos and pigeon droppings creating a health hazard.

The Fox Theater was built in 1912 as the Empress Theater. It closed in the mid-1970s and has been vacant since then.

After 30 years of neglect, what else can we expect? Another one bites the dust. Truely sad.

When theatres are allowed to just go to seed like that due to neglect, it’s quite sad…and inexcusable.

Inexcusable and shameful!
