The new Fox Theatre in Amarillo was set to open on July 30, 1967, according to the issue of Boxoffice dated the previous day. This 800-seat house was, like a number of theaters built during NGC’s expansion in the late 1960s, designed by the Los Angeles architectural firm of Pearson, Wuesthoff & Skinner. Amarillo architect Harold Mitchell was the local associate.

Great old theater now gone. Lots of great moovies there including E.T., Star Trek III, Beaches, Big Business, Dick Tracy, Cape Fear and Sister Act. The theater actually had two screens not one. Torn down in 1993.

The Fox Theater on Wolflin Ave opened in September 1968 showing “THE ODD COUPLE”. It played for weeks and weeks but I never wanted to see a movie about 2 old guys so I didn’t go to the theater until the premier of “BARBARELLA” December 3, 1968. I saw 262 movies there before they shut the place down July 27, 1992. The last was “DEEP COVER” June 20, 1992. The building sat empty and forlorn until it was demolished in the summer of ‘93. A Taco Bell and other businesses are now located at the spot where movies were once shown.
