Chaplin-A-Thon To Save The Fox

FULLERON, CA — The latest news from the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation…


In an effort to call attention to the precarious situation that our historic Fox Fullerton Theatre is in, Charlie Chaplin (professional impersonator and Fox supporter Ruben Girard) will attempt to break the world record for Charlie Chaplin impersonation by staying in character for 24 continuous hours at the Fox Theatre.

Charlie will be under the Fox Fullerton marquee from 12 noon Friday afternoon until 12 noon Saturday. We hope to also have the marquee “re-lit” all night. Charlie does not speak, but he will be happy to wave & acknowledge your pledges with a tip of his hat. He will break his silence only once, at noon Saturday, for an important announcement.

The event will be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records. This is a great time to come by and show your support. It will be quite a scene! Bring the kids! Bring cameras! Bring pledges!

We need people to stay up all night with Charlie in shifts; please RSVP to do this.


Due to our critical situation, we are extending the deadline for donations through this Sunday. Our office is open 9-5 on Friday, and there will be volunteers at the Fox from 10 till sunset all weekend. If you need to reach us outside of these hours, we will be checking our phone for messages- please be patient; the phone rings about 8 times before it answers! We will be in touch as soon as possible.
