Styles: Art Deco
The Fox Padre Theatre opened in 1933 as purely a movie house, built within the shell of a much older commercial building. It was given a typical Fox style deco marquee of the period, with zig-zag/scroll motifs in neon and a vertical sign to match.
In the 1960’s, Fox toyed with plans to remodel the Padre Theatre into a modern cinema named the Capri, but with the rapidly ensuing decline of downtown, these plans were scrapped.
All trace of the Padre Theatre disappeared with the leveling of most buildings on the block to eventually make way for the San Jose Fairmont Hotel and Fairmont Plaza office tower.
