Historic Fox Theatre


category : Historic Theatres
Historic Fox Theatre Since 1931, this theatre has been a fixture in downtown Hutchinson. The Fox made a comeback in 1999 following an extensive restoration and is now a center for art, entertainment and education.

Designated the "State Movie Palace of Kansas", the Fox is one of the finest examples of theater art deco architecture in the Midwest. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Fox has established an annual season of live performances including Broadway-caliber performances, as well as a classic film series. The marquee was the first flashing display of neon in Kansas and is one of the few surviving original marquees in the country. Two films shot near Hutchinson premiered at the Fox Theatre with the cast appearing at the event -- 'Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie" in 1953 and "Picnic" in 1955.

The Fox has become a popular meeting place and is available to rent. The theatre seats just over 1,200 and is handicapped accessible.
