News About This Theater
- Apr 21, 2009 — Hollywood stars to take stage at Centralia's Fox Theatre
This single screen theater opened on September 5, 1930, with Buster Keaton in “Doughboys”. The Fox Theatre was designed by architect Frank Wynkoop, working out of the office of Robert C. Reamer, with B. Marcus Priteca acting as consultant. It originally had 1,200 seats on three levels and was operated successfully for decades, until it was closed in 1998 (as a triple screen theatre) by its operator, Act III Theatres.
The Fox Theatre was sold to the non-profit group Opera Pacfica in 2004, which began the process of restoring the theater. It was occasionally used for movie screenings. It was bought back by the city of Centralia in 2007, and restoration work continues. Film performances began in early-2009.
