The Fox Theater opened on October 31, 1929 (just days after the Wall Street stock market collapse). It was a single screen theatre with 789 seats. It was designed in a splendid Moorish/Eastern style by architects Dick Dickson and Montana S. Fallis of Denver, CO. Externally, it has an ‘onion’ dome and a minaret, both of which survive today despite modifications to the lower part of the facade. Internally, the original decoration would not have been out of place in a mosque.
Now known as the Fox Cinema Center, it is a three screen cinema showing first run attractions. The two additional screens, known as the Little Theatre & Penthouse have been created out of former retail space on either side of the main theatre entrance.
