Fox's Riverside Theater opened in 1929 as a cinema/vaudeville theater house. It was built with a Spanish Colonial Revival style and attracted well-known performers including Bing Crosby and Judy Garland. Additionally, it became popular as a location for motion picture previews, the theater was the site of the first public screening of "Gone with the Wind." In 2007, the City began a major historical restoration of the Fox with the goal of making it the centerpiece of a downtown arts and culture scene. This historic structure has been reinvented as a state-of-the-art performing arts theater for Riverside and the Inland Empire. The design called for adaptations and additions on all three levels of the Fox Theater to include an expanded stage, new stage floor, seats, lighting, a restored decorative ceiling and a refurbished lobby. The Fox now boasts a 1,600-seat state-of-the-art performing arts theater that captures the original grandeur of the 1929 building, with updated amenities for patron enjoyment and comfort.
