The Fox Theatre was located on Route 22 East in Union, New Jersey. It had 1,200 seats and a huge wall to wall screen. The Fox Theatre opened December 19, 1969 with “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”. “Easy Rider” was the next attraction. Although the theatre was new and modern, it had an erractic booking policy and for every “Butch Cassidy” there was a slew of “B” movies (“The Happy Hooker”, “The Omega Man”).
In the mid-1970’s National General took over ownership and in the late-1970’s Cineplex Odeon. Except for an exclusive run of “Star Wars” in 1977, the theatre suffered from generally poor film booking. In the middle of its run of “An Officer and a Gentleman” in 1982 the theatre closed. It was gutted a short time later and now survives as a Chuck E. Cheese.
