The Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox started its life in 1931 as a Fox movie theater. Renowned architect Robert Reamer designed the beautiful Art Deco building. At the time, with 2,300 seats, the theatre was the largest in Spokane.
It featured the most advanced modern movie technology and was the only air-conditioned Spokane building at the time. Spectacular murals by Anthony Heinsbergen decorated the mezzanine and auditorium. The theater also hosted many stage performances by stars such as Frank Sinatra and Catharine Hepburn.
In 2000, the theater was slated for demolition but was saved and renovated mostly by the efforts and funding of Martin Woldson and his daughter. Today, the theater is home to the Spokane Symphony and offers a wonderful stage for the performing arts in Spokane. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
