Historic Centralia Fox Theatre

Once the de facto center of everything entertainment-related in the Hub City, the Fox Theatre is undergoing a major revitalization that aims to restore it to its former glory. A brand-new marquee that illuminates downtown Centralia is the public symbol of that effort.

The Fox originally opened in 1930 with 1,200 seats and operated until the late 1990s as a single-screen movie theater. It was shut down for a time, changing hands with the goal of ultimately restoring the theater, but it mostly sat empty save for a few movie screenings and community events.

Now the non-profit Historic Fox Theatre Restorations is working hard to restore the iconic look and feel of the theatre, and in the process has opened it up for two movie screenings per month in 2016. Movies include Jaws, Young Frankenstein, Xanadu and more.

Other community events are also held at the Fox, which is also home to Holley’s Place, a frozen yogurt shop and concession stand that is a major draw during movie times. Find them both at 123 S. Tower Ave. in downtown Centralia.
