The West Coast Hippodrome Theatre was opened around 1925. It was part of the Fox West Coast Theatres chain and was still named Hippodrome Theatre in 1950, when it was listed as having 1,078 seats. By 1952, it had been renamed Fox Theatre. This is one of the theaters where you enter on the side (the back corner, actually) due to the fact that the theater auditorium runs along the block behind stores. A restored advertisement on the back of the theatre has the slogan ‘the place to go’.
The marquee is excellent, and an extension covers a neighboring storefront. The theater has a single screen, but there are five poster boxes. The external ticket booth is long gone, but the lobby was not glassed in completely.
The Fox Theatre was closed in January 2011, it reopened in January 2012. The theatre seemed to be in very good shape. It operates with a program of concerts, movies, live performances and other events.
