Project Description

The Fox Theater project involved the acquisition and rehabilitation of a historic Art Deco theater located in the heart of downtown Spokane. The Fox Theater has been a significant Spokane landmark since it opened in 1931 and was in constant operation as a movie palace and performance facility until 2000 when it was threatened by demolition. Broad-based community support saved the Fox from the wrecking ball, and the independent, nonprofit organization which owns and operates the facility oversaw its restoration. The Fox is home to the Spokane Symphony, and it provides a mid-sized venue for a variety of performing arts, entertainment, business, and private events.
