If you haven’t been to the beautiful, renovated, historic Fox Theatre, 17 W. Congress Street in downtown between Stone and Church, here’s your chance. Their website provides info on their upcoming holiday events and there are many. Opening night for this gem was April 11, 1930.
About the Fox: “The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation was incorporated in July of 1999 and was formed for the express purpose of returning the theatre to the community. The Foundation is an Arizona 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed out of the citizen’s group known as the Fox Theatre Revival Committee, which began looking at ways to save the theatre in 1997. This group was composed of people who wanted to see the theatre restored, and re-opened. The stated mission of the Foundation is the purchase, restoration, renovation, and operation of the historic Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 17 West Congress, in downtown Tucson, Arizona. The Foundation is guided by a professional staff and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. For further information on the theatre, contact the Foundation office at 520-624-1515.”
And if you’re wondering where to park downtown, I recommend you instead take the Sun Tran bus as many routes go through the Ronstadt Transit Center (NE corner of Congress and 6th Avenue), just down the street from the Fox. Call 792-9222 for route information.
