Banning Fox theater (#0364)

Banning Fox theater (#0364) 

Per Cinematreasures.org, the Fox theater opened as the single-screen Banning theater in 1928, later taken over by Fox theaters and converted to a triplex. The building was remodeled in 2009. It looks to be nicely preserved -- the tile work around the doors and ticket booth is interesting (see larger version of picture).

Mike, kiiti have particularly liked this photo

I just love that old tilework. I'm glad they didn't "update" the front, like so many have been.

I agree, I'll have to stop by in the summer once the setting sun's shining on it.

I should upload a few I have of a theater in Tulelake, CA, that has a nice tiled entry like that. It was used as a second-hand store, but I think it's vacant, now.

I took a picture of that Tulelake theater in 2014 when it was still a second hand store, but my picture was from a time of day when you couldn't see the detail on the tile work: Tulelake, CA former theater (0973)
