The Fox Theater was a single-screen cinema of approximately 800 seats. It was built in the late 1960s of concrete block. It went through a succession of owners: National General Theatres, Mann Theatres (California), Wehrenberg (St. Louis) and Kerasotes (Springfield, Illinois). It was closed in the late 1980s and razed. The site is now occupied by a restaurant and a couple of hotels.
In the late 1970s and the 1980s, a variety of promotions were held: a swimming pool in the parking lot for “Jaws”, live birds in the lobby for “Romancing The Stone”, and an Egyptian tomb theme throughout the lobby for “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”. Its union projectionist was replaced with automated film platters and projectors in the early 1980s.
