News About This Theater
Similar in style to the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara, this Fox Theater is a beautiful example of the Mission Revival style on the outside and was built in the Atmospheric tradition on the inside.
The theater was opened on Christmas Day, 1930. The auditorium is constructed with the illusion of half buildings built into the walls for maximum effect.
In 1952 an earthquake occured, but the theater still held up.
In 1953, the Mediterranean Village interior was replaced with a contemporary Art Deco motif inspired by Fox West Coast Theaters' Charles P. Skouras, and a concession stand was added, along with a remodel of the marquee, box office and main entrance.
The Fox Theater has been recently restored and reopened as a live concert venue and showcase for classic film.
