The Fox Theatre, located on Illinois Street at 11th Street in downtown Sidney, originally opened as a single-screen 950-seat theatre on October 16, 1951 as a replacement to the earlier U.S.A/Fox Theatre along the street (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The opening movie was “Betty Grable in "Meet Me After the Show” plus a personal appearance of Rex Allen. It was built for Fox Intermountain Amusement Corp. and the architect was C.D. Strong, and the designer Mel C. Glatz. It was a Quonset Hut style building, with a Rustic style decoration. All seating was on a single level. An unusual feature was the projection box, located above the concession stand, which had large windows allowing people to see directly into the booth.
It is today a twin and shows first-run films.
