The Fox Screening Room (AKA Fox II) opened quietly on October 8th, 1978 and stopped showing movies in 1982.

Such a shame they took the Fox name and marquee down. This happens all the time, someone comes along with major money for the remodel and the original name large marquee comes down. Needed to be called The Alberta Bair Fox. They all want their name on the buildings some way. Its still the FOX to most people in Billings.

I saw ‘Nicholas and Alexandra’ here in 1971 and was quite impressed with this fine house.
