The Fox Concord Theatre opened on December 20, 1968. Its first feature was “Bullitt” starring Steve McQueen.
The theatre closed on or around November 15, 1978. The last feature listed as playing at the Fox Concord Theatre was “Death on the Nile”.
At present time the building is occupied by an athletic center.
The Fox Concord Theatre was my favorite movie theatre as a young boy growing up in Walnut Creek, CA. I can still remember the many features (both single and double) my brother and I watched in the mid 1970’s. “Skyjacked” doubled with “Kelly’s Heroes” (August 1972) and “Swashbuckler” doubled with “Rooster Cogburn” (July 1976) to name a couple.
Aside from how large the theatre was (at least from a 13 year old’s perspective), the two other things I remember most were the small set of steps outside the theatre one had to go up in order to enter and, more importantly, the Ghirardelli chocolate candy wafers “Flicks” that the refreshment stand always had in stock.
