I’ve set Street View to the proper location, but the pin icon on the map is still a couple of miles off. The Fox Theatre building is currently occupied by Fakier’s Jewelers. The Fox was just west of Gabasse Street.

Houma, by Thomas Blum Cobb and Mara Currie, says that the Fox was built in 1936, and there’s a photo with the 1938 release Romance on the Run on the marquee (Google Books preview– scroll down past two photos of the Bijou.) The Fox had a bit of simplified Art Deco detailing, and a nice marquee. It has all been stripped away by remodeling.
