The Fox was located on Boston Rd. near Parker St. Its modern style was comparable to the Loew’s Palace in West Springfield, minus the large glass facade. It was built in the late 60’s and closed sometime in the early 80’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.

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.
