I hope you can get the word out about the Fox, Though I don’t live in Pomona anymore, I was born there and grew up going to the “Fox”, the “UA” and the “State” Theaters in the 50’s and 60’s. Of course the Fox was the Crowning Jewel both inside and out. Even as a kid I knew it was special. I believe the manager of the Fox in the late 50’s and early 60’s was a Mister Rose. I also believe there were a few sneak previews there namely “Wizard of Oz” among others to get public reaction before they were released to the general public. Pomona has a great history but the simple things about the Pomona were the best like Cruising 2nd street after school, drinking “Green Rivers” at Thrifty’s, going to the Fair and going to shows at the Fox.
