Built in 1929 by Keith Neville, a former governor of Nebraska, who joined forces with builder Alex Beck, the Fox Theater was designed by Frederick A. Henninger of Omaha. It was donated to the North Platte Community Playouse in 1980 by Neville’s four daughters, and renovated through public donations and volunteer labor. The Fox sign and marquee remain.

As the Neville Center for the Performing Arts it is used for Playhouse stage productions, lectures, concerts and special events. It was added to the Nation Register of Historic Places in 1985. The design is described as “a fine example of the ‘Picture Palace’”, incorporating elements from various architectural styles.
