The Boxoffice article Tinseltoes linked to says that the Fox Garvey Theatre was designed by Platt & Associates. Sidney S. Platt designed the Garvey Center, in which this theater was located, and several other major projects in Wichita.

Please note that the Fox Theatre listed on this site and the Fox Garvey are the same theatre. The ‘technical’ name for the Fox is Fox Garvey, named for the Garvey family who the part of the Wichita business district that the theatre was located in.
