Oh my gosh- I am 83 years old and the Fox was a center stage event in my life as a child growing up and as a young woman and as a young wife. Thank you for allowing me to relive a lot of memories by seeing this building again. The Carmel Corn Shop was two doors down from the Fox and we always stopped there before going to the (show). I can remember going with my parents when I was about four or five years old and my husand and I would always go when we were a young married couple. I can remember walking up that beautiful staircase to sit in the balcony. Thank you so much for this.

The architect for the restoration of the Fox Theatre was Killis Almond, of Killis Almond & Associates, a San Antonio, Texas, based firm specializing in the restoration of historic buildings. Click on their “Projects” link to find a link to a page about this theater, as well as links to pages about some of their other theater projects.

There are a lot of pictures of the art deco details & some vintage pictures of this theatre on the homepage… it is a little easier than said above, just click on the broken link “X” and they will open in the same window.

Homepage – not designed too well. You need to right click on each of the photos and open each in a new window to view them:

Tour of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas Theatres in 2004
From June 26 through July 1, 2004 the Theatre Historical Society of America will tour a number of theatres in Kansas City Missouri and surrounding areas, including theatres in Lamar, Joplin, Richmond, St. Joseph and Springfield, MO, as well as Miami, OK, and these cities in Kansas: Leavenworth, Kansas City, Emporia, El Dorado, Augusta, Wichita, Hutchinson, McPherson, Salina, Concordia, and Topeka. More information is contained on their web site: and special photos and information concerning the Kansas City theatres: UPTOWN and the MIDLAND is available on this temporary page of their site at: A glossy brochure about this “Heart of America” Conclave is available from the Society’s headquarters listed on their homepage, via E-mail to the Ex. Director, or via snail mail. Membership in the Society is not required to attend the Conclave and tour the theatres, but fees do apply as detailed on their site. Bring your camera and lots of film, for it is usually difficult or impossible to enter these theatres for photos, and some of them will surely not be with us in the years to come.
