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.

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.

I was a projectionist at the Fox for many years. First as a relief projectionist from 1974 to 1984. In 1984 became the full time projectionist till laid off in 1991. Ted Mann owned the property and sold it off in 1992. Hung the second movie screen in 1974 and helped install Sensurround for the movie Earthquake. Sensurround was too loud, the low frequency bled into the 2nd auditorium. Volume was turned way down. Lots of high school kids got their first job there.
