A slight correction to teecee’s post. The Fox in Riverside did NOT close in the late ‘50s. I graduated from High School in 1963 and know it was open then.

Originally known as Foresters Hall, then the Forest Theatre. Built circa 1912. In 1916 bought by JB Fox and renamed the Fox Theatre. Remodeled in 1925 (adding the aforementioned Moller organ). Remodeled again in 1929 after a minor fire. Closed in the late 1950s and burned down as lostmemory notes above.
