Widely regarded as the “Crown Jewel” of Downtown Tucson, The Fox is right in the center of Tucson’s cultural hub and has an intimate connection with the history of performing arts in Tucson. The Fox has become an important symbol of the recent resurgence of a thriving city center and continues to make strides adding to the economic growth of the downtown area and Tucson as a whole.
The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation was incorporated in July of 1999 and was formed for the express purpose of returning the theatre to the community. The foundation generates community interest and investment in the past, present and future of the theatre by sustaining a place that offers high quality performing arts, cultural activities and films in order to inspire, excite, entertain, engage and educate guests from all over Southern Arizona.
The Foundation is an Arizona 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed out of the citizen’s group known as the Fox Theatre Revival Committee, which began looking at ways to save the theatre in 1997. This group was composed of people who wanted to see the theatre restored, and re-opened. The stated mission of the Foundation is the purchase, restoration, renovation, and operation of the historic Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 17 West Congress, in downtown Tucson, Arizona. The Foundation is guided by a professional staff and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. For further information on the theatre, contact the Foundation office at 520-624-1515.
