The Fox Theater
During the heyday of Hollywood’s golden age, movie moguls rushed to build opulent theaters across the country. William Fox—among the most ambitious of those tycoons—turned his sights on Bakersfield in 1930, hiring esteemed theater architect S. Charles Lee to design the venue. Noted for his mantra that ""The Show Begins at the Sidewalk,"" Lee's design for the Fox Theater tapped into the popular Spanish revival style with a striking Moorish tower climbing into the sky. Inside, colored beams, oil paintings, and rich tapestries wearing monacles lent the space a palpable aura of opulence before visitors even got to their seats.
The splendor didn’t last—after a neon-hued renovation in the 1950s and a few more decades of success, the theater closed in 1977. It sat mostly dormant until 1994, when a foundation saved it from the wrecking ball. Today, the venue once again dazzles audiences with the art deco details that adorn the auditorium and the marquee as much as the touring acts that take its stage.
