The Fox Theatre, a vaudeville and film theater, opened in 1930 to great fanfare and was a cultural mecca in Tucson for decades. It’s beautiful decoration, ornate proscenium, and luxurious lobby was the envy of every theater this side of LA.
By the 1970s however, downtown had begun to lose its luster as Tucson grew outward, and multiplex low cost cinemas began opening in every neighborhood. People no longer dressed up and made an experience of going to the movies. The Fox Theatre closed its doors in 1974 and sat abandoned for 26 years. In December of 1999 construction recommenced to renovate a bring back the historic theater, and in the theater officially reopened in January of 2006. Since then the theater has hosted everything from stage shows to popular musicians to classic movies.
