Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

The Fox Theatre opened in 1910 as a conversion from the Coliseum, which was previously used for skating. It had a seating capacity of 1158 with the entrance on Fox (Downer) Street. It was condemned in June of 1930 and was razed in October of that year. Only the entrance building remains. This theatre was part of the Syvandell Entertainment Palace.
