The Fox Cape was one of six theatres that lined Broadway in downtown Cape Girardeau. The Fox had a small balcony with a wide auditorium and spacious and decorative lobby with the staircase to the left of the lobby to the balcony. The facade featured a large marquee and a tall vertical Fox sign.

The caption to this vintage photo claims a location of Cape Girardeau, MO, but does not identify the building. Can anyone? The marquee at left appears to be marked “Little Theatre”: www.i8.photobucket.com/albums/a18/Warrengwhiz/capegirardeau.jpg

If the location really is Cape, the building is probably part of Southeast Missouri State University. I don’t know the campus very well, but I do know a lot of it has the same kind of WPA-era architecture as the building in the photo.

Mike Rivest has a grand opening ad for the Fox Cape, undated, but the opening feature was the 1930 release “Good News.”
