Fox Theatre set to reopen this week
WATSONVILLE, CA — The 1923 Fox Theatre is set to reopen in Watsonville, CA.
This budget Landsburg-designed theatre has been closed since April 1, 2005.
After nearly three years of dark screens, the historic Fox Theatre marquee is lighting up again this week to announce a blockbuster, a children’s matinee and an independent film.
“It’s a good thing for downtown Watsonville,” said Ivan Chable, general manager of the Fox Theatre, who personally scrubbed many of the 600 upholstered seats to prepare the 85-year-old theater for its reopening and hired the new staff. “The people in Watsonville don’t have too many choices where to go and have some fun.”
