Last Chance to see the FOX FULLERTON (CA) Marquee!

Get a last look before Tues., May 31


Above is the Fox Fullerton’s glowing marquee in 1964 in a special, double-page layout in Sunny Hills High School’s yearbook (Helios) showing the students taking a final bow. The Fox Theatre’s renovation will take on a whole new look beginning Tuesday, May 31st. Starting that morning, construction workers will begin taking down the distinctive triangular marquee and the ticket booth that have stood in front of the theatre for almost 60 years. For more information on the marquee and its removal, please visit the Fox’s Web site (


The Fox was originally constructed with a large, deep orchestra pit. During the 1950s remodel, the orchestra pit was made shallow, and reduced in size, by filling it with tons of dirt and concrete. Above, the concrete is being jack hammered out to return the orchestra pit to its original size and shape. For additional photos showing the orchestra pit being dug out, and other major renovation activities in progress, please visit the Fox’s Web site (
