Yesterday while driving down Spring Street, I passed the old Fox Theater. Old and empty buildings make me sad. The Fox theater was once a place of joy and happiness where people from all roads in life gathered together, even if it was just to stare at a screen. But movies were more back then, it was an outing and people would dress up and enjoy themselves. As I glanced up to look at the all familiar “For Sale” sign I realized it was missing. In its place, on the marquee, in beautiful big black letters, “Future Downtown Home of Re:Find Distillery”. I was so happy! The owners of Re:Find are going to breath life into this dying building. The Fox Theater will once again be a place of joy and happiness. I wish I could see it before the work starts, I always had a plan in the back of my mind to break in and take pictures.
Several years ago the owner of the Fox Theatre was selling seats. I’m not sure if they were the original theatre seats or if they had upgraded sometime during its operation.
