Fox Theater in Hutchinson
Well known regional example of art deco design in a theater. The Fox marquee was the first flashing display of neon in Kansas and is one of only several surviving, functioning, original marquees in the country. The theatre closed in 1985 and stood empty until 1990 when Hutchinson’s Historic Theatre, Inc., a non-profit corporation purchased it. After undergoing a $4.5 million restoration, the Fox re-opened in 1999. Special events and movies are presented currently.
