Movies coming back to old Fox TheaterTell North Platte what you think

The Fox Theater will be showing movies once again.

On Memorial weekend, the movie Sing! will be shown.

Tickets are just $5.

Show times will be 7 p.m. Friday May 26; 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday May 27 and 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 28.

Sing! is an animated musical. It will be the first of several movies that are planned to be shown at the downtown theater. The movies will have already been run through major theaters.

The North Platte Community Playhouse is aiming to show a movie every weekend, except when original plays and musicals are showing that the playhouse performs.

The playhouse acquired a 30 x 15 foot screen, a state of the art projector and a Dolby surround sound system with donations from several businesses, notably NebraskaLand National Bank.

The Fox Theater opened in 1929 and movies were shown there for nearly five decades. But by 1980, when the theater was donated to the community by the family of owner Keith Neville, movies were no longer being played. The theater is officially known as the Neville Center for the Performing Arts.

Great plan! The World Theater in Kearney has been showing old movies for years, and it's a big hot. In fact, I suggested on talkback a few years ago that the Fox should do the same, and a bunch of talkbackers jumped all over me and said it would be impossible. But, it looks like they found a way too do it. I hope it's a success.

This is great news! What a neat venue for seeing a movie. The new "cookie cutter" multi-theater format just doesn't impress as much as the ornate and beautiful old theaters from the past. I hope the community will appreciate this and will support the Playhouse in reviving the old "Fox"! I know we will be there.
