News About This Theater
The Fox Theatre was opened on September 20, 1929 with Lee Tracy in “Big Time” & Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in “Men O' War”. It was closed in 1933 and didn’t reopen until September 2, 1938 with a screening of “My Lucky Star” starring Sonja Henie. It was closed from 1933 to 1938. It was remodeled in 1945. It was closed on June 21, 1955 with Maureen O'Hara & Anthony Quinn in “The Magnificent Matador” & John Payne in “Hell’s Island”.
The Salvation Army converted the theatre into storage space in 1956. San Bernardino County Sun newspaper removed the seating from the old Fox Theatre long ago and they converted it into storage space. In February 2004, Dr. Harry Hwang purchased the building and began a ‘complete renovation’ as part of the new American Sports University and it was used for raves, and special events. Still open in 2010, the venture seems to have failed.
