Fox Theatre

The Fox Theatre was located on Boston Road near Parker Street. Its modern style was comparable to the Loew’s Palace Theatre in West Springfield, minus the large glass facade. It was opened February 26, 1970 with Alfred Hitchcock’s “Topaz”. It closed sometime in the early-1980’s. It fortunately never experienced being chopped up into smaller auditoriums, which made it a pleasure to view movies on its large screen.

The building later was converted into a Paysaver store. After Paysaver closed it became a Salvation Army thrift store, and is currently a Dollar Dreams store.

It is now a Dollar Dreams.

Dollar dreams is a great dollar store but nothing compared to the great HUGE screen theater it once was. I saw “1976” on a school field trip in 6th grade.

There was apparently an earlier Fox Theatre somewhere in Springfield. The 1927 Film Daily Yearbook lists “Fox’s” with 1300 seats, open daily.

OK, the older Fox Theatre in Springfield mentioned in the postings of Sept 28 2007 and just above is listed here in Cinema Treasurew as the Art Theatre, CT #3721.

I was a projectionist here for the whole 8 years it was open. They installed a Cinerama curtain track but only put in a smaller flat screen around 55' wide. Even the projection ports were almost 3' wide. They only put in Simplex 35mm machines and no stereo.
