I’m not sure that the Fox Theatre in the ACI photo lostmemory linked to was at Turlock. In 1942, the Fox was in the building in the postcard photo at the top of this page. In the 1950s it was converted into a bowling alley seen in this photo. In 1972 or 1973, the building was destroyed by a fire seen in this photo (the caption gives the date of the fire as July 1, 1973. I don’t know which year is right.)

The Fox name was supposed to have been moved to the Turlock Theatre in 1954, but there’s a photo of the Turlock with movies from 1958 and 1959 on its marquee. I’m beginning to question the claim that the Turlock was ever renamed the Fox. Maybe this house was the only Fox Theatre Turlock ever had.

I went to college in Turlock and went here in the 70’s. It was operating as a theater at least between 1970 and 1972.
